WIP Wednesday 12.12.18

Even though I'm scheduled every school day from now until the first week of January, I'm still being crazy productive on my quilting projects.  Here's what happened this week:

I finished my Catchin' Some Rays quilt top AND made a back for it. 



I made nine star blocks for the December Block Lotto.  Do you have a lot of scraps?  Come join us!


 
I got "something" done while Owen was bowling. 
 
 
I finished this really old WIP from like 1982.  It will hang in my quilt room.
 
 
I'm linking up with the 2018 FAL here. 
 
 
I added a few rows to my Short & Sweet pattern by Kim Diehl so that I can take it with me in my sew-to-go bag.  There's a lot of petals that need hand stitched to this.  (This is about half of it.)  I LOVE the colors that I have chose for this.
 

I played with my green fabrics for the Bonnie Hunter mystery, Good Fortune.  Glad we had that Sherwin Williams paint chip to guide us with picking those greens.  There's a lot of greens in the world!  See it right there in the middle of my big 30 gallon tub of greens?  Whew.  It came in handy!
