I finally got Week 1 of my Quilt Along blocks (Apples) finished! The lighting is bad, but I'm very happy with how it came out! All of my tiny stars (Week 2 blocks) are cut out and the squares are marked. I'll put those together tonight in class. I had to make one (below) to see how they will look. They are 3 1/2" at this point - very cute!

Here's what is on my Design Wall today. I just got Lori Holt's new book "Quilty Fun", and she's having a quilt along to make a sampler quilt from the blocks in the book. It started a couple of weeks ago, and I've been so busy, this is as far as I've gotten. I cut out the fabric for the Apples block and the Twinkly Stars. I plan to sew them up tonight in class. And hopefully I'll be able to keep up from here on out.

I'm working on a new project! Every year my Mom organizes a sewing day for my sister and I to celebrate our birthdays. This year she chose a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop website called Lattice Bones. It uses Jelly Roll (2 1/2") strips. I was able to put 5 blocks together yesterday, and I'm set up to get the rest done fairly quickly. I'm not sure if I'm going to use the same layout as the pattern. I'll decide when I get them all finished and laid out.
Above is a candid shot I took on our sewing day.
