St Patrick's Day is a a fine day for a wedding

And, this year we get to celebrate our 34th anniversary for a 37 hour day!
(I traveled from Beijing back to Andy in Chicago today.)

I've been drafting more 4 inch block ideas and this morning cut out a few so I am ready for little bits of time at the machine.

The Temecula Quilt Co.'s sew-a-long is about 4 weeks in. They post new blocks on Fridays. Because I am really enjoying unearthing my fabrics as I organize my sewing space and getting time at the machine, I caught up with their blocks and have been making more with other traditional patterns.
The sew-a-long project will be a small quilt and I intend to make a larger one, so my impatient nature will help meet that goal.
The blocks finish 4 inches.

grandma great and charlie

Spending a few days with my mother. We enjoyed a visit from my grand-nephew tonight!
My mom is called "grandma great" by this generation.

In the background hangs my version of the Seeing Stars quilt by Turning Twenty.

4-inch block sew-a-long

Temecula Quilt Co has started another sew-a-long with new blocks up on Fridays.

The nice think about these projects is they can become as big or as small as you want. If I get a few blocks made and decide I'm done, it is a doll quilt.
I am making two blocks each pattern so I have the option to make a bigger quilt.

Before the move I prepared 10 backs and tops and delivered them to my long arm quilter. She graciously stored them for six months and is now quilting them over the next few weeks.
I had also made some bindings and sleeves and labels before the move, and was able to locate them this week.
So, binding is happening!
