Linking Up

Happy Friday to you all! I'm showing a quick picture here of my Hugs and Kisses quilt that I have been piecing from Christa's Quilt Along. It will be sent to be given to someone having to go through chemo therapy by way of  the Hands to Help Challenge (see side bar buttons).
I'm linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict to show some of what I have been up to.
We are still refinishing doors and woodwork around here so only a little bit of sewing going on. I hope you all have a joyful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

A Treat and a Finish

Michelle from The Raspberry Rabbits treated me to a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. I don't have adorable real bunnies like she does, but I gathered around some of the group I have here and we enjoyed looking through this fun edition of great quilt blocks.

Thank you, Michelle, Harrington and Hannah! I will enjoy sewing this special block of yours in here. What a sweet treasure to find in my mailbox!
And finally for a finish...I have a picture here of my sweet Sabra and the Church Windows table cloth quilt I've been working on.

loot from the Quilt show

Torn between wanting to support the vendors who carried all that stuff in for us to see...and not spending too much money and bringing yet more fabric into storage here...this is the shopping that prevailed. Wonderful checked flannel and little pieces of wool from Farmhouse Threads who had a simply charming booth set up for us. I actually wish I'd purchased more there! Some lovely wool pieces from Quilter's Paradise,and Reets, Rags To Stitches. These are hopefully going to go in this project from Primitive Quilts 2013 Spring issue.

When leaving the show, I viewed these beautiful creatures enjoying the fields around the Madonna Expo. I waited for the beautiful golden horse to lift her head...but she was too intent on eating.

Today, I'm putting on the binding to my church window tablecloth and will post pictures soon. I have 24 of the X blocks to sew together for the charity quilt and still need to do the quilting on the wool wallhangings. So hopefully I will have some finishes to show soon....after I work the weekend at the hospital :-)
We are having a beautiful start to May here. Hope you are too!
