This and That

I have the plague.  Not really, but I am pretty sure that my body has succumbed to the sickness that the kids have been passing around for weeks at school.  Just in time for Mid-Winter Break.  Awesome.  I was not to be deterred by my 100.04 fever today though!  I finished my first ever 100% complete quilting project!  I can't tell you what it is though, or show the whole thing, since it's a gift.  Here's a sneak peek though:

I also realized that I never posted my Block-a-palooza blocks from this week!  It was kind of a crazy week around here, so I was super thankful that block 7 was a simple one.

Block #7

Block #8

Block 8 required applique... which... terrified me.  It turns out, it's no big deal!  In spite of the extreme traditionalness of this block (which had me thinking I didn't like it), this might be my favorite one so far.  I've already got another applique idea in mind for another project now too.

I've got the whole week ahead of me (as long as I get healthy).  I anticipate a LOT of sewing going on (and maybe even a little crochet, you never know!).

  1. Congratulations on your first completed quilting project! It looks great! I hope to get the binding on my first quilt in the next couple of weeks.
