Maniac Monday and a goodbye!

I am thinking to changing this to Trouble Tuesday or something like that because I seem to post better on Tuesday then on Monday. LOL!!

As for my list from last week...

1. Keep working on my Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt Along.
Sort-of ~Here is a picture showing how far I have come...not very far at all. 

2. PQA Bock swap block.
One of three done~I have two partners this month. I have made one block but I am unsure about it so I will make a second one and see how it looks. Then I will send both to her. I have got the fabric pulled for my second partner. 

3. "Count Your Blessing" blocks X 2.
Fail~I did not even touch it.

4. Make my two flowers for The Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap. 

Again Fail~ Did not even look for fabric.

It seems to me I need to stay on task with my goals or stop making them, LOL!!I have sewn a little. I I am working on bibs or "drool rags" for the little guy I am babysitting. You can see blue ones, red ones, one red one with the binding attached, and a finished one without a snap. When I am done I will have 10. That should last him a day or two.

Here are the flowers sent to me my my partner at The Inchy Hexagon Swap. Thank you!! I love them.

Over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict we are getting moving on our H2H quilts. Sunday we had a check in date and I missed it. So here it is. You can't really see the cream/white color, it is the "v" between the blue and green. My partner sent me a color palette from Design Seeds that I needed to match colors to for a quilt. I hope this works.

These following fabrics are for my second quilt for H2H. I have patterns picked out for both quilts.

 The following fabric is for my daughters quilt for her High School Graduation. We have a pattern picked out now I just need to get working on it. the pieces are large so it will go fast. I need to have it completed my the end of May. 

Now for my next weeks list. I am going to skip this. I am just going to see what I get done and list it all out next week. LOL! Have a great week. 

PS We lost one of our pets on Friday. We have had him for about 10 years. This is a picture of him with my youngest daughter. He was her dog. It was a hard day. But on a happier note my oldest turned 20 today!! Happy Birthday Bud!!


  1. You can still link up your H2H as Sarah has it open for a week. You are busy with a little one and family matters, so don't stress on lists or rules girl! Relax and enjoy the process as it comes.

  2. Love the colors in your BH quilt along!
