Keeping Busy

Hi y'all!  Been working hard on a ton of things.  This last weekend, I went up to Ft. Worth and visited my brother and his wonderful family.  I took along the Lil' Red panel and worked with my 3 year old niece to make it this weekend...

She was so proud of herself!  As soon as the doll was done, she laid her down with her pillow and quilt immediately.  

It was so much fun to make that with her!  I did get some work done on my projects too.  I finished up the next block for my Project 48 quilt.  Here are the first three blocks together...

And here are the first 25 blocks for the 365 Block Challenge 2016...

I am really loving both of those projects.  The purple blocks are all 3-1/2" and are slowly getting more intricate.  It's a lot of fun.

And then I finished up the last three blocks for the FQS Snapshots QAL.  Here is the slug bug block.  Sorry that it's blurry.

Snapshots - Slug Bug

That block was a bear for me.  It took way too long and my seam ripper was used way too many times.  But after that, things went smoothly.  I made the sailboat block next...

Snapshots - Sailboat

That was a fun block and was so quick to make.  I'm using Miss Kate fabric for this quilt and it is so bright and cheerful.  And the last block is the picnic in the park block...

Snapshots - Picnic Basket

I used leftover fabric from my first bee block to make the pinwheel and it is just too cute!!!  I am going to love this quilt.
