A little behind here! I have been keeping up with the Block-A-Palooza Quilt Along just been too preoccupied with another project, more about that later, but first, Block 5 designed by Miss Print. I love the block and the way it turned out!
Happy Zombie, love this design too! Used all Romanza fabric, which I am getting worried about running out before the end. I have the most of the pale yellow background so I am doing my best to use that wherever possible. I will not be playing along tomorrow with Block 7 as I was summoned for the dreaded jury duty! I shouldn't complain: this is the very first time I have been called and no matter where I have lived I have always registered to vote. If you can believe this, my daughter was called about one week before she left for college her freshman year! The judge very kindly excused her, but what a start.
One of my quilting New Year's resolutions besides making a dent in getting my growing pile of quilt tops quilted (resolution #1) was to start making some of the quilt kits (resolution #2) I have collected over the years. And I have a lot. I have a history of being a real sucker for those Objects of Desire! ~ I've started with a kit that somehow became separated from its instructions, here's the fabric along with some from my stash (resolution No. 3: use stash rather than buy).
When I did a doll quilt swap a few years ago, my partner sent several blue/yellow charm squares that I've been able to put in the quilt. Each Bento Box block (try saying that three times fast!) measures 8 inches finished. I've been somewhat obsessed with working on it for the past few days, here's my progress so far,
Talk to you later ~
