DWM - 4 flimsies!

April is have a spa week, getting all tuned up cleaned up, regular maintenance and new interchangeable feet.  I sure do miss her. But when she's back I'll be ready.  My "waiting to be quilted" list has gone from 0 to four in just one short weekend.  Here's what I have finished up - Lorisquarepants - all 30 blocks done.  Measures at 90x 108.   Ugggghhh, I know it's going to have some level of shrinkage at first wash and while quilting.  Do I make 6 more  blocks and just make it 108 square?

Guess what's coming up???   100 Quilts for Kids, that's right and this year it's hosted by Quilts in the Queue.  I'm getting a head start with 2 quilts already.  The first one is "Awesome" lap quilt from Moda Bake Shop - goes together so quick and seriously awesome, great name huh?  The second one from Fat Quarter Shop free pattern is "Charm Pack Cherry Quilt Pattern".  I made mine one column larger and then flipped 90 degrees.

And last is a chevron quilt I'm calling little boy blue.  Ok I'm so ready for April to come back home.  Oh and very excited, I order my first roll ever of wool batting.

Almost 50 miles on the bike this weekend  - here's a couple of pics of what's in bloom on the prairie

  5. You have been busy! Love the name for your chevron quilt... Little Boy Blue. All of your baby quilts are adorable. And your Lorisquarepants quilt is gorgeous. If you are at all concerned about the size, add the extra blocks. I am usually happier in the end when I do.

  6. I say, you got some serious piecing done! You must sew at the speed of light. I can only imagine that it is separation anxiety with April away.

  10. Wow - all wonderful tops - I especially like Lorisquarepants. You've given me a name for my new machine - think I'll name her May as I bought her on the last day of May.
