Still Here

I am still here 😊

Thought I would pop in and show you what I've been up to since my last post in...uh, January!

First, our team won the Super Bowl...we are one very happy family.
I've been out of town quite a bit and try to make the most of my time in the sewing room when I am home.

Mary of NeedledMom and her sister are hosting a Temperature Quilt QAL.  You track your local temperature and create a block that represents the high and low for each day.  You can read more about it here.  

This year's block is a Square in a Square.  Mary provided a very nice tutorial on how to create this block but I decided to use this opportunity to learn paper piecing.  

I found the correct size template online and set up a sewing machine dedicated to this project.

This is my quilt so far.

I found a couple of days where our highs and lows were pretty close together.  

My friend Kelly and I are participating in Pat Sloan's block of the month Let's Go Camping. It's a mystery quilt.  We have completed three blocks and I am wondering how this will all come together.  I purchased the main fabrics Pat suggested and the colors are all over the place...at least for me.

Here are our blocks.

Kelly and I went to a quilt show in February and found a cute pattern for a wall hanging so that is another project we are working on.  We are both happy to say that we are using our stash for this project.  

I'll share again once it is finished.  I'd like to say that will be soon but I have more traveling coming up (2 two-week trips back-to-back) so...it will likely be end of April or beginning of May.

If you made it to the end of this post...Thank You!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
