Month 5 in the ShenandoahValley Botanical Album Quilt (do you see why we shorten it to SVBAQ!) sew-a-long is the Yellow/Pink Tulip. I surprised myself by finishing it early this time (but I think I should have pressed it before I took the photo!). Well, I guess I surprise myself every month when I realize I am still keeping up with this.
This is my 8th block (I made 4 of the first month’s Pineapple block for the 4 corners). I now have the first 7 hand quilted and bound.
I switched up my block arrangement a bit from the original. It will be a while before I can start stitching them together as they are introducing the blocks randomly, which is actually a lot of fun. Maybe I'll just leave them in a pile for a while!
I like to see what Doreen and Dawn will come with for the next blocks. Do head over to the blog (here) to see all the wonderful blocks. They are on Facebook as well.
I actually got quite a bit accomplished this weekend, but nothing photo worthy. I made up 75 kits for my upcoming “potholder quilt” classes. That took all day Saturday and of course while searching for scraps to make up the kits I decided to clean out two huge scrap baskets. I see a scrap giveaway coming soon! I should have photographed the empty baskets.
Enjoy your day.
