I've been filling in the spaces in my quilt. It's fun because it is going quite quickly and I am seeing the quilt take shape. Here's where I am now: I wish I had put another channel in between the bubbles in the ghost diamond and the 'headband' portion, but I would have had to… Continue reading Liking this so far!

You'll see in a minute why I need the layout of block centers before I begin adding the surrounding portion of the block. I used the tonal filter on my phone's camera to… Continue reading Making Progress
Block centers continue to multiply. In fact, I think I may almost have enough. I'll count them tomorrow. In addition to my block centers, I have this pile of scraps: Most of them are just strips of a single fabric, but some are more interesting: The sizes are all odd, but I am thinking I… Continue reading Work in Progress Wednesday
It's time for July goal setting for the OMG (One Monthly Goal) linkup, and I am getting in under the wire.
