WIP Wednesday 7.3.13

Summer has been busy but I have still managed to get in a little quilting here and there.  Here's what got done this pat TWO weeks:

I received all the May Block Lotto winnings.  I put the "landing strips" on all of the geese too:
I made one Block Lotto block for July (it's going to be a busy month). This will probably be it.

Finished all the dreadful stars in the Lucky Stars QA (Yeah!!! The hard part is done.)

Decided upon the layout of my String of Pearls QA blocks. (Yeah!!! The hard part is done.)

Finished the first block in the Aiming for Accuracy QA.

Here's the big quilt bag that I made.  Turns out it comes in handy at the waterpark too.

Some crazy quilt blocks for my LQG members:

I finished Julianne's MMMRR13 and mailed it to her in California.  I received my MMMRR13 in the mail.  I haven't had a chance to get it on the frame yet.  Can't wait to show you the whole thing!

Here's the baby quilt that I totally fell in love with that I finished: (Front)

 (Back) -- Seems to be getting popular on Pinterest. :)
