Bits and pieces of what I’ve been working on . . .
I got another paper pieced snowflake done for my Quilt Around the World Christmas swap. Katy requested that all her blocks be made with red and white only. I love the results!! I’ve made 9 so far . . . I think!
We were to send FQ’s totaling 2 yds from our stash that no longer ‘speak’ to us. Since I did a huge overhaul of my stash last year, I didn’t have many that I didn’t love so I had to throw in fabrics I still really like. I’m excited to see what Michele makes with them!
Here are the fabrics Michele sent to me.
At work a couple of days ago a book came in with a project that is outside of my box that I think I’ll make with these FQ’s.

Another swap block done for my Vintage Sheet Freedom Bee. This one is for Jessica.
And this one is for Kylie
I have a few more I need to make SOON!!
* * * * * At Harriet’s we sell these darling kits to make two paper pieced blocks. There are tons of samples made, but not all are made up so I took home a pack and stitched up these two leaves.
They finish anywhere from 3 1/2” square to 5” square with out borders. One could enlarge the foundation, of course, to make a bigger block. Next on my list is the birthday pack which has a present and a slice of cake and an animal pack that has a monkey and a giraffe.

I’ve almost got all the bindings done on the mini quilts I’m taking to Argentina!! These were so fun to make – I’ll do a post on them later.
