Last Week in Rehab

Thanks to Sinta for encouraging me (and many others) to work on some block of the month projects.  I really wanted to finish my 2010 FQS Designer Mystery BOM, especially after seeing Sinta's pictures of her quilt.

I only had 4 blocks to finish and they were already cut out!  No more excuses!

But there was one block I wasn't fond of and I tried to figure out something seasonal that I could add that wasn't already represented in the designer's blocks.  How about a cardinal?  On top of a tree?   I think he turned out pretty cute.   I know he needs a beak, but maybe I will applique some wool or do some embroidery.

I'm happy to say that all 12 blocks are finished!   Next up, putting the quilt together and start working on the 2011 FQS Designer Mystery BOM!

Spools Finished!

I had a productive weekend.   Finished my Spools quilt!   I made mine one row shorter than the pattern.  "Someone" in my house told me my spools looked like they were going to fall over!

I also got back to a long-neglected Block of the Month project.   Come back tomorrow and see what I finished in BOM Rehab.
