Taking Advantage of the Momentum

I finished piecing my Union Star wall hanging last week...

Lots of little pieces...lots of points...

I cut the border pieces when I cut out everything else...and it fit...with no fudging...amazing.

Finished piecing my Monday Mystery...this would be a great go-to pattern for a quick cute gift.

Now I need to figure out how I'm going to quilt them.

I quilted the Charm Pack Cherry Quilt - with all the WHAMs, ZOOMs and POWs in the quilt it needs a different title.

I tried a new-to-me FMQ design...not too bad for the first time, my muscle memory really wanted to revert to curves and loops. I will definitely try this design again.

Check out the back of the's a stripe and it's straight! I thought for sure it would end up wonky.

Does he look comfy?

Caught Up

The pic below is my latest garage sale finds...I think poor Mr. Froggy needs a girl friend for courting. He makes me smile when I see him sitting on his swing in my backyard.

I started Pam Buda's Market Day sew along...I'm now all caught up.

And I'm all caught up with my Monday Mystery.

Plus I'm making progress on my Union Star. I think I'm getting my quilting mojo back.

Mom, Happy Mother's Day

Have a great day! Wish I was there. I love you and all the other mushy stuff.
