Making progress, and a win!

Progress continues!  Binding is ready for the hourglass quilt I just quilted.

I'm not a lucky person, I can count on my fingers the number times I've won giveaways.  The other day was my lucky day!  I won Aurofil thread on the Sew Fantastic blog.  I LOVE Aurifil.

Started work on my April MiniQT Swap quilt.  This month is ticker tape quilts.  I hope my partner will like it.  Here is just a tiny glimpse.

WIP Wednesday

It's hard to believe but I finished quilting and binding the pinwheel quilt I was working on.  (Pictures later this week, just haven't had the time.)  While I was on this "get them done kick" I decided to grab another one and get to quilting.  I basted it together at my mom's on Saturday because I don't have a large enough floor space to do it.  I'm about 1/2 done.  Hopefully it'll be totally complete by the weekend.  That will leave one more quilt to go, three years of quilt retreat projects almost complete!

Apparently my dog is a big fan, he plopped right down on it when I laid it out just to see how the quilting was working out.

March/April S.T.U.D. mini quilt received

After taking a year off from swapping I decided I missed doing it and the fun packages that come in the mail.  I jumped back into the STUD (swap til you drop) swap on Flickr.  Last week I got this beautiful mini quilt in the mail from CASharp.  The packaging was beautiful, so I got really excited from the start.

And the quilt surely was more then I expected.  So beautiful!

And she included so many goodies along with the quilt, I feel so spoiled. 
 (sadly blogger wont upload the picture for some reason)

I have her quilt all done except the binding.  I plan to finish that up this week and get it sent off. I do love swapping, glad to be back at it.
