Flurry of Spring Activity


These rainbow flaps on 6 purses for Sew Powerful are so dynamic!  Great way to start off March

This pile of 24 SewPowerful purses need 24 notes.  Some of them I have written, but I need to put myself on a schedule and do 2 or 3 a day.  Jason and Cinnamon Miles from Sew Powerful will have a booth at the International Quilt Festival in Rosemont, and I am volunteering each day - March 27 to March 30. (Next to the purses are log cabin blocks...))
This quilt top - for me - is just waiting for the binding to be sewn down.  I'm not sure why I want to do this huge quilt by hand, but I do.  No. 12 thread is perfect for hand-binding.

After working with so much color, I had to find a lovely neutral project.  And I love this one.  The 16 blocks need to be joined and then surrounded by the darker grey. 

These two baby quilts need to be basted and bound.

These two tops need basting, quilting, and binding.

This is my summer hand project.  One of the nine 27" blocks is completed - the remaining 8 need to be marked.

I love these fabrics and am so ready to turn them into a full-size Trip Around the World.

And these 5" blocks on a black background?  Yes, please.
