Friday Night Update

Whew! This week has been crazy! I was so happy to come home tonight and focus on working on my quilt alongs. I had all of the Star Surround blocks pinned and ready to go. I sat down, started sewing, and on the second piece…..needle breaks. I go into my sewing supplies for a replacement….and I’m out. Sighs….So a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and I’m finally able to get started! (Don’t you just love days like that??)
Finished piecing the “surrounds” for the Star Surround blocks tonight. I cannot wait to see these come together next week. I could totally relate to Melissa at Happy Quilting earlier this week when she was saying the same thing. The blocks are so perfect. I’m already planning another large quilt and a baby quilt (or two) using this same pattern.

Then I finally was able to start the next step on my Road to Brenham (Patchwork Times) quilt. We put together our first blocks tonight.

I really wasn’t sure about this one. Even when I was laying it out, I was doubting my fabric choices. But after I got them together, I was doing a happy dance. Don’t you love it???
This weekend, my daughter has a big pep rally to perform in (she’s in front of the formations! So proud!). But when I do have sewing time, I’ll attack the next step in Road to Brenham, the next step in the QOV Mystery Quilt, and the next block in the Virtual Quilting Bee. What are yall working on??
