Wow, I sure was successful at ignoring housework this weekend! (Please don't pay me a surprise visit. Yikes!) And I got a lot of sewing done. That felt great! It was cold and even a little snowy (though our snow has melted by now), so it was a great weekend to stay inside and work on quilts. I did have a good visit with some old friends at a Saturday evening dinner/planning meeting. Otherwise I pretty much stayed home. Here are pictures of my progress:
I made a block for the Lotto I participate in. This one is for April. I only managed to make one, because previously I made one and then accidentally sewed it to the bottom of another project! Dumbo! I didn't have any interest in making more than one. It was just a miracle to get this one finished.
Since it is so close to May, I went ahead and made two lotto blocks for May. These were kinda fun. I wouldn't mind winning these!
This is a Home of the Brave quilt that I volunteered to assemble. My guild makes a lot of these, along with Quilts of Valor.
While I was in the mode, I made these blocks for another Home of the Brave quilt.
And I made two blocks for Quilts of Valor
I tried to get caught up on my quilt journaling, but realized I didn't have all the pictures I needed. Since I started quilting in 1999 I have kept a record of the quilts I make for friends, family, and for me. I'm already into Book 3! I don't even record all the charity quilts I make, except for a rare one that may be for a family member or unique cause. It's really fun to look back and see how far I have come. I'm still loving quilting, and I keep learning more and more about it. I am still amazed that I know how to do this wonderfully fun art/craft!
