WIP Wednesday 8.21.13

Not going to sew much today.  My little sunshine starts kindergarten full time TOMORROW!  Sniff... sniff... But it's been a productive week otherwise.

I completed my String of Pearls quilt and am entering it in the fair today (judging Friday).  This was a QA at  Christa Quilts blog'

I finished putting together the top of the Tall Geese I won in the 2013 May Block Lotto this year.

I have enough of the 60" wide shirting fabric to put on the back of the tall ships charity quilt. (My son loves the red ball in between the quilts on the clothesline.  He hits it with his bat.  That's how I learned to be a home-run hitter.)

I celebrated my 48th birthday -- here's a gift from my friend, Julianne all the way from California.

Selected fabrics for the 2013 fall mystery quilt with Heather Spence Designs

There's plenty of time to join.  Check it out!!!
I did a sample 10-minute block that I found on YouTube.  Quick and cool!  http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=ZbTHlGGKMPM
