Yes, I actually did some piecing this week but I am working on adding on some applique for the border!! I chose the pattern from the June/July issue of Quilt magazine page 61 called Skinny Dip. I thought some flowers would work well using up the remaining fabric. I only have the upper border done but I am working on the flowers for the left hand side also. I thought to only add two borders with flowers to the top and left hand side! This seems light and bright, perfect for a baby girl.
I also finished up one Hawaiian block and one Baltimore Album block. These took forever to make so things seem to be moving slower and slower these days as what I work on gets more complicated!! Dont forget to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the desing walls!
Well, not to much to show but I am trying to find a design for a baby quilt. A friend of mine from work is having a baby girl in April and I thought I would try to get a jump on the Baby Shower that I am sure will be announced with little notice sometime in March. I will be spending some time picking through my extensive magazine collection looking for the right pattern for the fabric I pulled from my stash. I love the pink flower fabric and the greens and bit of blue and yellow really work with all the patterns. I have a feeling it will turn out well but I will let you know next week.

Another productive week! I need to catch up on holiday stuff at some point but I was able to complete another Hawaiian block and another Baltimore Album block!! I also finished my Spring Chick's row quilt strip (which will be revealed at a later date) and am beginning to work on my 12 inch by 12 inch challenge art quilt. The word for the art quilt is Tranquility and I need to figure out what that means to me. I am not a tranquil person so finding my tranquility may be a challenge in itself, not to mention putting that on a 12X12 quilt. Humm, maybe if I quilt some more I will find my vibe on this!!
