Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend, and for all my friends in the states I hope you had a happy Independence Day celebration last week. Hubby and I didn’t do the traditional BBQ. Instead, we visited the Mountain State Arts & Crafts Festival in Cedar Lakes, WV with friends. It’s a fantastic festival and the organizers do such a wonderful job pulling everything together. The only bad thing about the day was how hot it was. We were under a heat advisory with the heat index reaching about 105F. We weren’t able to stay as long as we would have liked – we got the heck out of there and found some air conditioning. I ended up suffering from some heat sickness for a couple of days, but am all better now.

Even though my week didn’t go quite as planned, you’ll be happy to hear I finished two more blocks on my Midnight Mystery quilt. That’s a total of 3 blocks! Only five more to make. This UFO is going to be finished {hopefully} before the end of the year! LOL

Because I’m making such good progress on the MM quilt-along (did you hear the bit of sarcasm in my voice just now?), I have decided to jump in and join the #100Days100Blocks2018 quilt-along that’s going on over on Instagram. I’m not sure why I decided to add this to my daily To Do list but I did. We are on the third day right now and I have managed to keep up. Let’s all do a happy dance, okay? The real question though is how long I’ll be able to stay on top of the QAL. I’m optimistic, but also pretty realistic. If I fall behind, one of you please kick me to get me back on track!

I’m going to build my quilt using fabrics from this Blueberry Park fat quarter bundle I’ve had in my stash forever:

Blueberry Park Fabric Fat Quarter BundleI will also be pulling fabrics from my scrap bins to fill in. My loosely formed plan is to have some kind of rainbow order layout, but a lot can change in 100 days.

Here are my first two blocks:

That’s it for my crush this week. I hope to make more progress on both projects, as well as finish up some customer quilts. What do you have planned?

I hope you’ll share your crush for this week – what has you excited to be in your sewing space? You can link up any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
