First, I want to apologize to everyone for missing MCM last week. I needed a medical procedure and with the prep for that and the after effects of the anesthesia I was out of it for more days than I had planned.

Later, when I felt better I talked with Tish of Tish-n-Wonderland who said she would have offered to host MCM. I felt like such a dweeb for not even thinking of that!

Please accept my apologies for being gone – I will do my best to not let that happen again. And if something happens that I do have to miss a Monday, I now know who will be willing to co-host. πŸ™‚

I feel like I’m up to my eyeballs in projects right now. All of them are paid (which is a very good thing), but it’s a bit stressful. It would be soooo nice if there were more hours in the day and there was another me running around to help!

I’ve been busy working on a quilt for my mother-in-law, and testing a new pattern for another blogger.Β The two are the perfect match. I was asked to make the quilt in shades of blue to match the bedroom, and I added a mottled yellow to give the quilt some extra movement. I really like the way it looks. I won’t show you the entire block or quilt top here until the pattern writer is ready, but I can share some of the components of the blocks.

Test Pattern Sub Blocks

Here are all the sub-blocks ready to be assembled. It has been easy to keep all the pieces organized and I’ve been lucky to not sew the wrong pieces together (sometimes that can be a real challenge!)

No bobbin for HST

However, I did have a “DUH” moment when I sewed all these HST’s together without any thread in the bobbin. LOL

Have you ever made such a silly mistake?

This week I’ll continue to work on this quilt, teach the last session of the Beginning Quilting class, and hopefully get a wholecloth baby quilt finished. The baby is due on the 26th, so I’m really pushing the deadline with this one!

Those projects are keeping me excited to be in my sewing room this week. How about you? What are you crushing on this week? I can’t wait to see what you’re working on. You can link up any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic -here’s how:
