A Few Things I'm Working On

In my last post, I mentioned my intent to contribute quilts to David's House as part of the local guilds' donation work.  The world is small.  It turns out that my son's girlfriend's father and David were cousins.  Now I really, really must make some quilts for David's House!  Here is the first quilt top finished:
 Thanks to the very generous Weeknight Quilting, all the math was done for this Minecraft icon and it was a fast cut up of fabric on hand and a chain piecing party to make this top.

Yes, I have joined the thousands that are participating in the Splendid Sampler.  My plans is to use only my scraps and low volume prints in each block.  Here are #1, 2, 3 and 5.

The fourth block involves needle turn applique and is accompanying me on a trip this weekend to see my niece play ice hockey in Buffalo and then onto Ottawa to look at a university for her.

And I'm slowly making progress quilting block by block that oldie but goodie from 2012!

Hope you're having a wonderful week!


  1. So many fun things!!! Love your Splendid Sampler:-)

  2. I love how you made one big block instead of a bunch of little ones. What fun projects.

  3. Busy, busy, busy . . . why do we always have so many pots on the stove? I'm the same way, projects everywhere :) I think it keeps life exciting.
    Happy weekend!
    Connie :)

  4. That minecraft quilt is going to make some little boy super happy!

  5. Cool quilt top and pretty blocks!

  6. You have a great variety of projects going on.....enjoy! Especially "college shopping" with your niece. :)
