So my sewing mojo is certainly back with a vengance. I not only have I
finished a quilt this week, but I started on my most challenging one, a wedding quilt that needs to be done before November. I had previously decided to do a double wedding ring quilt, and changed my mind several times. I have finally settled on a pattern. Whirlygiggles! It's modern and funky, and I think fits the couple better than the rings would have. Two blocks are now done. Here they are:

I also received my first quilting bee package from Nova Scotia! So far away from my little corner of the world. I was initially worried about this block, but knew the reason I joined a quilting bee was to challenge myself and learn new blocks & techniques. I was overjoyed to find that not only could I do this block, but it turned out so good! Dorey's fine instructions helped tremendously, and I hope I can provide equally good instructions when my month comes around in May. But I've got a lot of time to think about that one. Here is Dorey's block:

Off to do more!


  1. The block looks fabulous! Thank you!

  2. You're so fast!!! Nice to hear that it went well though, as I am very apprehensive about screwing up...

  3. Thanks Dorey! Meagan...don't worry! The insturctions are so easy to follow, just do one thing at a time and it'll all just click! Good luck!
