Yes, I've been busy, just not posting :)

Hello friends - I have been busy sewing but haven't finished projects lately, therefore the lack of posts. Plus the weather in PA has been so beautiful that I even spent time in the flower beds!  Which is amazing since I'm not usually an outdoor type person, I'd rather be sewing...LOL

It's time to sign-up for Hands2Help Quilt Challenge.  I've decided to donate 2 quilts.  This top is for Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo.  After I've finished the quilt, I will post a mini-tutorial for this alternative layout of the "Disappearing 9 Patch" block.

For my 2nd donation, this one to the NOLA project. I'm going to use these animal blocks that I received as part of a swap several years ago (like maybe 10). They've just been hanging out in my sewing stuff, even through a major move, just waiting for the right project.  I'm playing with the layout now, so more on that later.

And I recently finished a dress for my daughter, Heather, but I forgot to take a picture, so here's a picture of the in-progress stage, I'll post a finished picture soon! Don't you love how the vintage hanger matches the dress - Makes me smile :)

Also, linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts, thanks for the motivation Amanda Jean!

So what projects have you been working on?

Happy Spring!

Your H2H quilts are pretty. I will be looking forward to seeing how you finish the cats quilt.

Good work...Priorities dictate more time for sewing.
