My Bicycle Quilt Update...

For my bicycle quilt, instead of the stars that pattern had, I substituted hearts.

Look what just arrived! A lovely block from Sue, SA. And she spoiled me with an extra heart block too! Thank you so much, they are both gorgeous!

Man, It's been Crazy Busy

I don't know about you, but this last month has been ridiculously busy and I haven't had much time for quilting. In fact, I am over a month behind on my bicycle quilt and several months behind on other projects. I am hoping it will start to slow down for June. I haven't had much spare time to catch up on blogging but I plan to remedy that this week (I love reading everyone's blog and checking out what they have been up too).

Over the long weekend, MommaBird and I drove down to Havre, Montana for the day. We stopped in at the LQS and I picked up a few goodies. Some 505 spray, a new rotary cutter, some super cute fabric, a charm pack and a giveaway item for my blogversary. You will have to wait and see for that... just over a month's time!

I also finished another block for the Mom and Me quilt:

And I just received this lovely block in the mail from Gina, UK for QBSA. I love the design and thank you so much for the adorable British fabric and post card.

Blocks Incoming!

Today, I received my QBSA April block from Ann, Nova Scotia. It is absolutely stunning and I LOVE the purple kitty fabric (I am the biggest purple fan by the way!).

and a close up:

How freaking cute is that????

Yesterday, I also received my March block from Terri, QLD.  The pattern is gorgeous. I love the 4 patch with the flying geese.

...catching up!

Spring has finally arrived this weekend and I am over my strep throat. I have quite a bit of catching up to do and I have just been moseying along on my current projects. I finished the 4 bicycles and started on the watermelons for my Girl Gang Club.

I saw a wonky star on the QBSA and I just had to make one for myself.

It is suppose to be 18 deg tomorrow!
