Still WIPs

More progress was made over the weekend on the two graduation quilts.  
Saturday was a fun sewing day with the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild gals...we had a huge turnout!
On Sunday, I snuck (not sure if that is proper grammar) away from the Father's Day festivities every now and then to sew;-)

I'll share more pictures of Sew Day later, but look at this quilt top made by Linda!  It's the first one finished with our new Block of the Month program.  I love this one made with the May blocks!  

Getting back to the graduation quilts...the stars one should be finished by now.  Here's a sneak peek.  It is almost done.  Every time I join two blocks, I seem to change my mind about the layout.....

My shoofly blocks are in various stages of progression.  These blocks have mainly been pieced as leaders and enders while sewing the stars, but I chained pieced quite a few HSTs on Saturday.  I'm glad I worked on these at Sew Day because I realized I did not cut enough blue squares and triangles.  Until I do that, I've done all the piecing I can.

Per Michele's request, here's a picture of some shoofly blocks...hope to show more soon ;-)
For now, they are still WIPs...

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. I LOVE the shoofly blocks! You picked some really fun fabrics. They look great with the blue.

  2. It's wonderful to see your quilts coming to life. The stars one is really striking. I can't wait to see how you quilt it.

  3. Progess is such a good feeling!! I'm loving how your stars are floating, and the shooflies are really looking good!

  4. Great, great fun! Sneak, sneaked, snuck? Haha. I was an English major and I don't even know if any of them are real words besides 'sneaky';)

    PS I am having same link list issues that you are. Please correct your link list for me at "With Heart and Hands" to:

    Makes me sad that blogger can't connect with domains and give us link lists and show the photo properly! Everyone is so darn territorial!

    Check out my last post on a 'look' bid for the 2014 Winter Olympics based on a theme of...gasp!..Patchwork Quilting...wouldn't that be awesome?
