I began quilting my sister's quilt and am using Aurifil thread for the first time. So far I am loving the results. I have to say however that I am a little disappointed that the Aurifil hasn't magically transformed me into a free motion quilting genius. I guess only practice can do that.
I played around with stamping on fabric and dusted off my scrapbooking supplies to make this mini quilt top.
The cupcake block was made in my QuiltCon paper pieced class with Penny. I stamped the words Life is sweet! on cream fabric and attached to the quilt top with flower eyelets. My iron had issues with spitting which accounts for that damp spot you see.
I made progress on my Cowboy/Cowgirl quilt that I WILL finish by this summer.
More paper piecing blocks by Penny. I started this asterisk block and became discouraged when I sewed my fabric backwards. I found this Carol Doak YouTube video with a solution to this oops AFTER I had ripped apart my block.

Our guild's block of the month for May is a scrappy chevron block. The tutorial for this block can be found here at In Color Order.
Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by,
