WIP Wednesday 5.11.22

One more item came off my WIP list this week!  Good Fortune (a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt) is now complete.  You can read all about it here.   I'm so happy that it is now complete.

I finished putting together these blocks for the Ice Lollies quilt (designed by Latifah Saafir).  I will try to work a little each Sunday on this quilt until it is complete.  This dedication Sunday project plan seems to be working for me to get projects done.  This will be a little crib quilt.

I continue to make progress on my 3.5" rail fence blocks.  I think I need more purple and then I'll have the 900 or so blocks to make a large quilt.  Here's some orange scraps that I cleaned out of the scrap basket put to good use.

I also finished up playing with the prink scraps by making rail fence blocks.  Here's over fifty of them.

I did put the pink away and get out a bin of green scraps.  I made a few 3.5" HST blocks for my HST quilt.  Today I will get out my bin for this project and count on my colored sheet how many more HST I need and will play with forest green scraps.  I know I have plenty of forest green scraps.

Our son had an exciting event and went to a fancy dance.  He will be finishing up remote learning (and 8th grade).  His last day this school year is May 26.  He has been a remote learner since March of 2020 and has come so far!  He continues to amaze us each day.  Next year he will be returning to in-person school.  I'm nervous and excited for him.  Either way, God's got this all planned out.  Here he is with his friend, Star.  They have been friends since about 18 months old.

I am taking full advantage of the beautiful weather this week and moving a lot of perrinials.  You can read the full post here.  This morning before getting out of bed I had a great idea of moving plants around to the outside of the chicken coops.  Hoping for a productive day today.  I'll be working on moving the plants to the right of the orange line in the phto below.

Your Good Fortune looks so nice. You really have a lot of blocks there!!! Owen and Star look so nice all dressed up. It will seem strange to return to in person learning after so long.
