WIP Wednesday 4.21.21

 Here's what happened this week:

I'm so excited that I finished piecing my Scrap Crystals quit top.  Scrap Crystals is a Bonnie Hunter design in her book More Adventures With Leaders & Enders. 

I pieced all the turkeys in my Gobble Gobble quilt with polka dot scraps.  The pattern is by Bee in my Bonnet (Lori Holt).  You can see it here.  

I put a small border around Owl's Well That Ends Well.  I re-sized the blocks and made them smaller to make the pattern more compatible with my Accuquilt dies.  The original pattern is by Judy Gauthier in her book, Quilts for Scrap Lovers.  I also changed positions of some of the wings to mix it up.  

With hesitation I took the QA, Follow Your Path, off of my sidebar.  I decided I will just have to watch the others play.  I don't think I have the energy for another project in the rotation right now.

I'm dragging my feet on making asterisks for the Full Stop quilt for the RSC21.  I was going to make them while my son was taking state math tests yesterday, but I realized that this was the last day for some coupons that I had clipped.  I did get them to this point:

Yesterday I was going to mail my Hot Mess Temperature quit to Little Lambs for the H2H (Hands to Help) 2021 charity quilt drive.  There was still some space left over in the mailer so I decided to stuff two more quilts in there.  I mailed these three for a donation this year.  The below photo was yesterday.

Today we got up to the ground being covered in snow.  Glad I didn't start anything in my garden yet.  I didn't mow yesterday either because snow was in the forecast.  It is pretty, though.  Glad I picked a few lilacs for the vase last night.  These photos were taken this morning:

I now stand at 54 projects on my WIP list.

What a great package to send! I have 4" and counting of snow that have buried all my gorgeous tulips so I am more than a bit bummed. Wise choice to take some thing off a list that would not be healthy to do.

What a great show. I'm speechless. We got more snow today, too, after some sunny days.

You have been making good progress on your projects! I am sure the quilts you mailed will be much appreciated! You were smart not to plant anything yet. I sure hope my zinnia seeds survive.

Great donation there, and I love those gobblers!
We had snow also but as I like in Canada , it was not too surprising!
Stay safe and sew on !

I love your Bonnie quilt! The birds are all so cute too - owls and turkeys. Nice job on your donation quilts.
