Happy Chemo

I have the first two quilts done and ready to upload the pix to Sarah's H2H site.  One is in the process of being bound.  Had to take out 12 lines of quilting.  Boo.  Tension issues.  Now everything works right.

Yes.  I have Happy Chemo 3 done.  I did some machine binding after I glue basted the binding onto the back.  It worked pretty well.

Back to Blogging

I have been remiss on getting back to blogging.  I finished five quilts over Christmas and do not have one picture to show for it.  That is what happens when I don't have my blogging journal to keep track of all of my projects.  So, I am back.

I am back in Block Swap Adventure and these are my last three blocks.

February Block

March Block

April Block

I have also been trying to tame some scraps.  I got the bow tie accuquilt die and cut away.  I have lots of 4" bow tie blocks.

I also cuts lots of strips and half square triangles and squares. This was only the fabric that was hanging on my wardrobe door and was annoying me.  Still have a medium bin full of scraps to cut.

My husband got me the Accuquilt Go cutter to add to my arsenal.  I already had the Go Baby.  It came in handy when I was making a log cabin quilt for my sister. I stocked up on dies over Christmas when both Accuquilt and Joann's had sales.  Strip dies are very expensive.  I also like the Block on Board dies and they are not cheap either.  I used the Ohio Star BOB die for my March block.

Now I have pictures of some of my projects.  There will be more.  I need to get my log cabin quilt pix off of my phone.
