Hello Stranger

How I have missed you (my blog)!  I haven't posted in ages, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been busy.  I have a few projects to share tonight.

I finished this quilt last weekend.  I made it entirely from my stash (woooo hooooo)!!!  Most of the fabric is from Riley Blake's Happier line with a few other pieces added to get the size that I wanted.  I pieced the back with scrap pieces of Minky that I had left over from other projects.  I think that it turned out great.  I echo quilted every seam, machine stitched the binding on the front of the quilt, and hand stitched it to the back.  This quilt was given to one of the doctors that I work for.  He and his wife just had their second child, Annalise.  Here are a few more photos.

the worst part of the quilt, by far!  It's not straight... not even close, but it didn't cost me a penny, so I love it!

I've also been busy working on Lindsay's block for Beejebers.  She asked for a family game themed quilt block.  I still have a ton of work to do on the detailing, but I think it is coming along okay.  I will post another picture once it is finished.  This is going to be one cool quilt.  I think you can see some of the other game board blocks for Lindsay here.  

Ok.... I am off to work on this crazy Operation block.  I think it is the hardest thing I have done so far, but I am loving the fact that it is pushing me outside of my comfort zone!  Wish me luck.
