A Whole Lotta Stuff

Last week was incredibly busy.  In addition to all the usual stuff I had to do, I helped take down two quilt shows, helped tie the community quilt, attended  the piecing group thing on Thursday (2011 BOM), and drove to Monroe on Friday to be part of a quilt workshop.  Phew...and that was just the quilty stuff.  Consequently, my design wall looks the same today as it did last week except for the addition of the star I didn't finish on Friday.

These are some more of the Lemoyne-based blocks from my February presentation for the 2011 BOM group.

These are the blocks for this month.  Mine is the one with the navy background.  This block is called "Enigma Star."

This is the fabric we used for the sashing and the perle cotton we used to tie the community quilt (you can read more about that here)

Here we are working on the quilt.  That's me behind the camera. :~D

We finished tying the quilt and Susan Young is going to do the binding.  She promised to let me photograph it when it's finished.

And this weekend, spring seems to have sprung (finally) here in Wisconsin.  These are some tulips that came with the house when we bought it.  They're always the first thing to bloom.

And there's a bud in the only hyacinth I could find in the garden.  I did find a lot of dandelions, though.

Wow, lovely star! Don't you love it when you look back and realize you got lots of stuff accomplished!

It's so nice to see all the stars -- some the same some different and lots of colorways. Nifty. Dandelions come with the territory unfortunately. I wonder if I have any hyacinth buds....?

You were busy!! I love all the stars.

I guess you've been busy... Liking the yellow star... has some interesting piecing. Those tulips are very interesting... not what you usually see, (the huge petals and bold centers). These are much more interesting, as tulips go.

I love your navy blue background star (Enigma). It looks 3 dimensional. Where did you find this block pattern?
