Progress but no finishes

This week is left me feeling very blah.  Between the coldness and then a could really nice warm days, I truly think I am so over winter.  I have not completed anything this week but have a lot of projects at various stages. 

I finished the quilting on my Annie quilt the other day, just need to finish hand sewing the binding to the back.  


I loaded my Pantone Challenge Quilt/The Library Project Goal, on the frame and got started quilting.  I have till the 21st to finish this one in order to be able to link up with the challenge.  I have no real plan for the quilting of this one.  I was just going to just do straight line quilting but then I decided to mix it up.   Should of just stuck with the straight line would of been done with it already.  


I am testing another pattern for Aria Lane so I have been doing a lot of cutting.  Can't wait to be able to show this off. 


I finished three of five blocks for my Star Light Star Bright Quilt.  The other two are close just some points were off to much for me so I had to rip them apart and start over.  Hoping to have this on the frame by end of next week so I can finish it before the end of the month since it is my goal for March at Lovely Year of Finishes


I am going to use this Snuggle Flannel for the backing. I picked up at Joann's a couple weeks ago for $3 a yard instead of $8, super savings.  I think it goes perfectly with the top. 


I cut out all my pieces for this months Ruby Red Dot blocks.  Now just have to finish starching the sides under.



I also received some giveaway winnings this week, love free fabric!  I won a gift certificate from Sew Mama Sew for use at Miss Matatabi in Japan.  So cool!  I picked up meter cuts of these lovelies.  



Then I won Mad About Patchwork Flickr Friday giveaway and selected two fat quarters.  I love the mice riding a bike, too cute!. 



Stop back next week I hope to have a few of these things finished up so I can show. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 

Cheers, 
Abby
