Ok, I worked really hard last week and finished block 5 of P3Designs Mystery BOM. Below are the rest of the blocks. Now I need to start the alternate blocks and borders. Whew, these blocks are incredibly beautiful but so much work! They look so hard and it takes me a bit to work up the courage to get to work on them. The work is worth it, these all turned out so well!! I had a great week, enjoyed a visit from my daughter and her boyfriend and now looking forward to the work week. Don't forget to check out Judy's blog and see all the other design walls.

Happy Monday!! I have all my Mimi's Bloomers blocks up on my wall. The latest one was posted on Friday and I have yet to get to it! It will be this week so that will be fun. I also finished my Miss Kyra top, also by Erin Russek. I do love her designs but I did switch up the border a bit adding a few more Dresden Plates. I worked on the borders, and only the borders, for 8 straight hours on Sunday. It was a DO OR DIE TRYING day, either I finished the borders or I scrapped them and started over!! I am not unhappy with it but I think I need to look at it hanging on the wall to get use to the corners! I am planning on hand quilting the half Dresden Plate bocks into the empty border spots to keep the theme....I like the idea of that!! On to more projects that I can finish up, I am hoping to get so much more done over the next month and clean up some of these UFO's!!! Remember to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls!!

Not too much done this week, other then the second boarder for my Baltimore Album Quilt, two down, two to go!! I am going to get those last two done, hopefully, by the end of the month. I just need to keep on top of the project. I enjoyed hanging the two borders up just so I could see if they are mostly identical and they seem to be very close.

This weekend was Finish Up Weekend. I finished up my first applique quilt, which I had finished hand quilting several weeks ago but never got to the binding! Yippee, so good to have it done. I also finished another Mimi's Bloomers block, but I am unhappy as my dark purple looks the same as my dark blue. I think I will have to switch one of the heart out for another color....just which one?? Red would work but it seems to look like the dark pink I already have there. Decisions, decisions. I also made progress on two other projects, just little steps but there was progress!!Don't forget to check out all the other design walls on Judy's blog!! Happy Monday!
