WIP Wednesday 8.5.14

Vacation was a blast.  It's time to get back to sewing.  Here's what happened the past few weeks.

I did take on one new project this week.  It's a charity quilt for my local quilt guild.  Each year we donate a quilt to be auctioned at the Pegasus Farms annual charity event.   It's one of their big money makers for the year.  Last year's quilt went for $1025.  Let's hope this quilt brings more.  My part is to longarm quilt the queen-sized quilt.  This quilt was pieced by other members of my guild.  IT's GORGEOUS!  I'm quilting it with my go-to Circle Lord Swirls.  The points are so accurate!

Kelly is having a giveaway on her blog today.  Check out My Quilt Infatuation.  Link up with the Needle & Thread Thursday.
Needle and Thread Thursday
I still can't decide how to quilt this mini.
I made a red kite girl block for the RSC14.
Here's a special little 6" block that I made for a swap.
I managed to make two spoke blocks for the July Block Lotto.  I already mailed them to the winner.
Remember this pic of Tiana?  Well, sadly ZERO eggs hatched.  I'm not sure yet what went wrong.  I'm thinking our rooster is still too young.
