April Bee Blocks and Start Ups

April Bee Blocks are done and in the mail!! Yeah! Winging their way to their new home. The pattern was from Sew Fresh Quilts and is really easy to follow. I did not tempt fate and made the chickens all facing the same direction.
 I will be doing a guest post for Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict so thought I should get a move on the Christmas quilt. This has been a plan for a while so looking forward to having a Christmas quilt AND decorating Martins house. Not sure I've told him yet, but I'm thinking turkey dinner and all the trimmings. July 15 is my date, I am quite excited. Aren't those fairies the cutest!

I have been working on my Grandmas Attic quilt and I am in love. It is taking way more HSTs than I thought and I am making the second batch.
Melinda has reminded me, subtly, several times, that she is waiting for her quilt. Her birthday is next weekend so best get this thing finished up! I am ready to be done with it. How did it get to be May already.
I started a new baby quilt that I am very pleased with. Everything was going well until I decided to start from the other corner and work into the middle. Erg, both sides are now not the same. I threw it in a bag and there it sits. I am sure it will not take much to fix it but it went from being a cut up and sew super fun project to a oops now I have to think about it project. The only way it will get dragged out is when the mom to be gets to be nine months, or they have a baby shower. I hope I have at least a month or two.
This is my second commission quilt. By another daughter, I have three, and no, for those that asked, I did not get paid for the first one.


  1. Love those chickens and hope the baby quilt works out without too much trouble! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday!

  2. Those chickens! Super cute!

  3. A lot of pretty work on the go. I also bought the lovely fairy fabric and am saving it for something special. gorgeous blue quilt.

  4. The Fairies are delightful, and as for a quilt that doesn't match up somewhere, I don't have an easy answer for that.We all hope if they get put away for some months, the problem will by some miracle get fixed all by itself.. Everything is looking lovely, you have been very busy.
