Playing catch up again.......

I had to share this photo of Gillian's One Block Wonder.  She took the class with Elaine in April, worked on it diligently during our 4 day quilt retreat at the end of April and put the borders on last Monday - it's awesome!
I honestly don't know how she does it!  I know I try to "focus" on one project at a time and lately have been able to perservere but I usually get distracted.  She really keeps her eye on the prize and just gets it done! 

My friend Lisa stopped by last Thursday to say hi and see me before the surgery and brought a wallhanging she's been working on for a while.....it's an adaptation of a quilt she saw at a show and it's really gorgeous!

We talked her into staying for awhile and she got it all squared off and then up on the design wall for a photo op, but the best is yet to come, she's finished the quilting and now she gets to add all the embellishments.......I definitely want to see this when it's completed.....

Each of the segments has a ribbon attached where there will be decorative beads hanging which she has been collecting for a while....it's really going to be stunning!

That's all for today but I do have more in store so stay tuned!  Tonight was our monthly "Sampler Club" meeting (Dear Jane, Dear Hannah, Farmer's Wife and Nearly Insane....)  I got one more block cut and am heading up to bed to get another one cut before I tuck myself in for the night.....in preparation for my recuperation days!

Happy Quilting!
