Welcome everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to march into the week – I know I am.

The princess birthday party was a big success. Snow White was there, along with several other princesses. My tiara was taken out of storage, and I got to wear it the entire day. Baby Jenny and I spent a lot of time together and we had so much fun!

My crush for this week is Jenny’s wallhanging I finished last week. You can read about it in this post. And, just in case you missed it here’s a picture of it. 🙂

I have lots to do this week to keep moving forward in my sewing room. My To Do list looks like this:

  • Teach a make-up class to a couple beginner quilting students on Tuesday
  • Attend guild meeting on Wednesday
  • Make more progress on quilting my m-I-l’s quilt. I know I keep calling it a beast, but it is! It’s so big and of course I had to decide to do all custom quilting (insert rolling eyes emoji here) so it’s taking me much longer than I anticipated. I need to get it finished and off the frame because I have customer quilts that are waiting their turn.
  • Cut fabric for the Cookie Cutter pattern and piece the top. This will be a store sample and has a deadline attached to it so this one might have me stitching late into the night.

That’s my list, what does yours look like?

Before we move on, I have a public service announcement. 🙂 WordPress has updated again and now comments are not being forwarded to my email. I try hard to respond to every comment  (except during a giveaway), so this is a frustration for me. I apologize in advance if I miss a comment or two; please understand I appreciate the time you take to write and I’ll be working hard to make sure I see and respond to every one.

Now, before we get to this weeks MCM, let’s take a closer look at a few of last week’s link-ups. There were so many good ones!

First up – Liz of Savor Every Stitch. Did you see the Avant Garde quilt she finished? I like how the design really shows off the fabrics, and it looks so good on her bed. Liz is the proud owner of a new longarm and she got to use it on this finish. It looks great!

Karen of Tu-na Quilts is catching up on her bee blocks. She made this star block with a fussy cut coneflower center. I tried to grow coneflowers once. I was a successful for a couple of years and then the flowers died. This block reminded me that I need to try again!

The quilting on this piece by DonnaleeQ took a lot of time, but was worth every minute! I really like the details – be sure to check it out.
