Think Spring and New Focus for the week

Last night, I started putting the little Think Spring quilt together and couldn't stop! Has that ever happened to you?? It helped that Dear Hubby was watching a football game and didn't miss me as much as he would have normally! Gotta love this time of year!!!



So, last night, I got the entire thing sewn, quilted and bound. Can you believe it? This morning, I washed it and tossed it in the dryer and now it's all quilty!!! Love that!!!!

And, I put away the Double Four quilt (aka Mountains and Valleys) and thought long and hard about what my focus project would be for the week. I chose this:



Dear Sister's Everlasting Wreath Quilt. It's been in the making for a long time now. I've shared pics before and talked about this quilt, but this week, I am really going to focus. I won't finish all the blocks (there are a lot of them to make), but I know I will make noticeable progress. I pre-cut most of the pieces quite a while back, and this week I'm going to work on sewing the blocks.



Looks like I'm going to need to cut more fabric for this one at some point. I don't think I have enough done to give the quilt the variety I like....

So, off to the sewing room!

Happy Quilting!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That Everlasting Wreath is amazing! I've done a fair amount of foundation piecing but these really take the cake. I've had your previous blog entry about this quilt bookmarked for a long time - can you please tell me how big those hexagons are?

Oh, I just love this wreath quilt! It's marvelous in that it is not rectangular! I love it when quilts think "outside the box!"

You're really getting things done!

What is in the container in the envelopes. I'm assuming it's fabric organized somehow but I can't quite see what is on the envelope.
