Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet Up

Lily over at Lily's Quilts is having a link party for blogs with less then 50 followers.  I have one so far so a few more won't hurt :)  I have never joined one of these link ups before so I am not sure if my blog is even something someone would want to follow.

I try to challenge myself and learn new things.  This year I am learning foundation paper piecing and have joined several BOM's to improve my skills.  I am addicted to joining BOM's and QAL's, I can't seem to help myself,  I love seeing what everyone is making. 

So for first time visitors, I thank you for stopping by my little blog  please have a look around. I thought I would share a mosaic of what I worked on in May.

1. MAY 2013 - Retro Rubies QAL progress, 2. May 2013 - Dancing Star QAL, 3. May 2013 - Forest QAL Block 9, 4. May 2013 - May Lucky Stars BOM, 5. May 2013 - Forest QAL Block 8, 6.

  1. Hi Abby!
    You have done a lot of paper piecing this month. They all look great and I am impressed you finished the hexi blocks for the POF Skillbuilder. I just can't get motivated to do those. Your mosaic is great!
