What I'm working on

It's been awhile. Over a week, in fact. My excuse? No batteries in the camera. I know that shouldn't really count, but I haven't made a ton of progress. I am wanting to start new stuff, but I know I need to finish the other projects first. I'm feeling a little scatterbrained in the quilt department lately.

I got this pattern for Christmas. It uses a layer cake and I am using Fig and Plum from Fig Tree Quilts. I really wanted to try just one block. I only cut enough fabric for one and put it together. Now I can work on other things and not feel quite as antsy to get started on this one done. As I've mentioned before, I'm quite baby hungry. Still no word on a baby, but I really want one. A few years ago before my 2 year old was born, I saw this pattern in a magazine. I bought all the stuff and then my next baby was a boy. I decided to get this out and work on it a little this summer, then we moved and it got put away. I'm trying to finish it now. The lady bugs are taking quite awhile to applique. I'm just doing it on my machine, but I am not very good at it, especially the little ones. I also finished the top of Jake's football quilt. I've been working on my grandmother's flower garden. I've decided it's gong to be a baby quilt, or possibly a table runner, depending on when I get tired of it. Last night I did the white hexagons. It took over two hours and most of them don't have the sides sewn yet. My quilt group exchanged blocks again. It's always interesting to see what fabric people used. I was so sure I was using the right color blue. Um..... mine is the only one that color. Sorry guys! Here is every one's blocks. Now.... what to do with them?

What cute projects you've got in progress! I loved your blocks you sent in for the exchange, by the way. It's nice to see different values of blue...makes for a better quilt, I think! =)

I think your projects are coming along nicely. I love the ladybugs, and the GFG too.

I agree, you need to post what pattern you're using on the Fig quilt. I LOVE IT. And your blocks were beautiful, I'm glad you were in it and I'll miss you in the next one, especially since you love Aunt Grace so much.
