Sew Sunday

What a week - Spring is here and the yard beckons, and the deck, and the lawn furniture, and the flower beds.  Then it turned back cool and rainy - so yay, back to the sewing room.  

I did get to finish the borders on this top.  The corners required more work after deciding on what I was doing with the borders, I had to make additional diagonal strips to have the corners match up with the rest of the diagonal strips.  Do you get that?  Because I'm confused reading it.  
I really like this, and now I won't want to give it up.  But I will.

Finishing up a few bee blocks - this one for Modern Mavericks - we are making black and white modern dresdens.  Anything goes, I like those directions.  

And these are the last two blocks for the 3X6 bee.  I have to get them out on Monday.

I'm scared to list what I need to work on today -
VBMQG pillow cover for swap
Postage Stamp Blocks for swap 
Traveling Quilt pass
Stripper Quilt pass
Back for finished top
Paper piece blocks for Forest QAL 
I hope to have at least a few of these to show later in the week.  And then edit my blog for spring, add some more blogs I read to the list, fix that Instagram link - I can't remember where I got those cute little link buttons for flickr and pinterest, so I have to find them all over again and make anew.  
I'm practicing on Instagram - I like it, I think.  Figured out how to follow and I'm working on that #hashtag thing.  My follow button is on the right side bar, if you want to look me up - I'll be happy to follow you too!

I see you found me on instagram and your quilt looks great. I envy you the lawn furniture, we had fluries of snow today, although not enough to stay on the ground.

I love the sunny spring weather, but am always torn as i then want to do gardening! Loving the bee blocks, but that list is looking a bit scary! :o)

Squeeeee! I think that block might be for me! I hope so! I'm planning on working on blocks today as well. Switched times at work so I might have some sewing time and be able to sleep before 2am. I like the corner diagonals that match the diagonals.
