Update for Me!

Here's a photo of the 2nd set of 12 blocks I've made for quilt #2. My little helper (as you can see) was trying to get in the limelight again! At least he seems to be feeling well enough to get involved!


My first quilt is going along nicely. I probably have about another 2 hours of hand quilting to do and then I can get the binding done. My hope is that I'll have it finished to enter it in my local show in 3.5 weeks. Should have plenty of time between now and then to get it done!

Your blocks look beautiful. I especially like the ones in your first pick (with your little helper), the border fabrics really make the stitchery stand out.
