What Have I Been Up To?????

Hi Everyone,

Besides Thanksgiving and working on customer quilts, I have actually had some quality sewing time!! YAY!!

First, I have been working on my strata quilt. It just sings to my heart, I love it! Here is my pile of blocks...

Here is the fuschia and yellow block....

Here is the purple and fuschia block....

Here they are next to one another in 2 separate stacks....

No matter which way I look at them, I just love them!! I bet Jane will appreciate the fuschia and Terri will love the purple???

Now onto what I have been working on for the Black and White Challenge. Here is a glimpse of the block....

Another glimpse....

And here are 3 on my design wall. Only 6 more to go!! Woo Hoo!!

Just one other side note, if you haven't stopped over at Anina's, she has a new online shop open. She is running a 20% off sale. What are you waiting for go check it out....

Also, check out my friend Kathy's new blog and welcome her to blogging!!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!!

Stunning! I love the boldness and color choices of both quilts. The black and white quilt just sings to me. The touch of orange is just perfect. Glad that you are finding some time during this busy season to get some personal sewing done. Take care.
