Each month I receive the fabrics to make 3 pieced and 3 applique blocks. So far, I have completed all the pieced blocks, but I am running a bit behind with the applique. With the holidays in the rear-view mirror, I am trying to catch those up.

Doesn't matter. I've decided to keep this one. I very rarely keep a quilt, but this one is special. I've created a couple of quilts with my own designs and they usually end up somewhere else, but this time I'm keeping this one. The hearts are paper pieced to look like a crazy quilt patch. I love them and they are just like people......no two hearts are alike.
I have lined up just the right LAer for this project. This quilt is calling for something custom. Can't wait to see what the LAer does with this one.

By using a Pink Lemonade Bali Pop and a Meringue Treat Strip, I can complete the entire quilt top except for the third row of border. I cut the jelly rolls to the needed length and throw them in a basket. Whenever I get a couple of minutes or on those days where I'm not feeling so good, I can just feed the sewing machine a couple of strips and not have to think about it. Later on I can cut them apart and do the thinking part. But generally, I can put the strip sets together in a couple of days.
Now that it is finished, it is time to send it off to the LAer. I can't wait to see what she does with it.
OK family and friends, who wants it?

I am very happy to announce that my little quilt raffle raised $600 for Children's Heath Care of Atlanta.
Also, the quilt went to a very good home. Mr. McLemore was the lucky winner.
Here is Tyler's latest picture. He's going to be real cool this summer. Best wishes to him and his family.

The quilt is entitled, "What was I thinking?" There are 3,108 pieces and I was beginning to think that I would never finish it. Quilted with feathers, I am very delighted with the result. However, I can assure you that I will never make this pattern again.

I've heard all the horror stories about participating in round robins, but I am going to do it anyway.
This is my block, a feathered star and I am about to send it to CeCelia in Australia. I'll keep you posted on the progress and let you know how it goes. Someone else should be sending me their block within the next two weeks and I can't wait to see it.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I hope I am not setting myself up for a let down.
