WIP :: 5/8/13

Yesterday at work, my Junior Quilters made blocks to send out for the Quilts for Boston collection.  They had a good time and did a nice job putting their blocks together.  There's still time to make and send a block or two to the Boston MQG for their project - check it out here.

After the meeting, I pulled out my Roman Stripe quilt to baste it.  It's so nice to be able to bring my quilts to work and borrow the table space!  I don't think there'd be an easy way to baste anything larger than 20" on my floor!  I'm excited to be able to sit down and start quilting on this - I'll be making designs in each of the grey triangles. 

Well, that's what I'm working on this week and linking up over at Freshly Pieced.  Don't forget to check out Sew, Mama, Sew's blog for all the amazing giveaways as part of Giveaway Day (week)!  You can find my giveaway post here - it's open until the 10th! 

this was the sky today at lunch!


  1. Great job by the junior quilters! Can't wait to see your picnic quilt after it is quilted.

  2. Great blocks for Boston quilts by your junior quilters; and now their hearts are turned to that city, which is a good thing.

    Roman Stripe is a favorite of mine--yours is looking really fine! I hear you about basting on the floor--my arms just aren't long enough for the big quilts. So much easier on a table surface.

    I found you through Freshly Pieced, as I like to comment a few up and a few down from wherever I land in the Linky Party. Fun to read your post!
