I had to do a tiny little catch-up this month and had great fun with April's Block 8 designed by Amy Lobsiger at Mrs. Schmenkman Quilts.
This block came together so quickly that I jumped right into Block 9 designed by Cathy Underhill at Cabbage Quilts.
With 9 blocks done, I can start to see the finish line. Only three more months and the top will be a finish!
Thanks so much to Jackie for hosting this quiltalong. I was still pretty new to Blogland when I started and it has been a great adventure, and it's not too late to join in! All the instructions for this free quiltalong can be accessed through Jackie's blog, and pictures of the blocks from around the world can be seen at the BBOM Flickr page here.
If you want to see pictures of most of my projects, I have my own Flickr page which you can visit by clicking here or going to the link on my sidebar. When I take a peek myself, I realize how fortunate I am to be retired and have the time to play with fabrics!
I sent away a little birthday package to Sister 4 last week. I purchased this kit from Sweetwater at their Etsy shop here. I didn't take a picture before I sent the package, but the little linen bags with the cute labels, beautiful lining, and covered buttons turned out just like these, thanks to Sweetwater's excellent instructions and wonderful fabric choices.
Their Etsy shop is just so much fun to browse and their service is superb.
