Indio and Easy Street

     Today finds me packing my bags for a girlfriend trip to Indio California. Looking forward to laughing with the girls. We will be going to the 3 day Stagecoach Country Music Festival while there. The weather will be slightly warmer there than here so I have plenty of sunscreen. It  may be up to 99 on Saturday!
     and for my WIP (work in progress) Wednesday I am still sewing the binding on Easy Street. This is one big quilt! I will be sending it to Sisters in July with the quilts from  PMQG. I hope to get to that show this year and see my quilt actually hanging!

for now.....off to pack. Enjoy your day!

Trying my hand at a little Improv piecing .....

     I am in a monthly internet block exchange through Flickr. We call ourselves the "Sew Be Wonky"
swap.  I have been in it long enough to have had two turns at having blocks sent to me. The first group of blocks were these.

For the month of March it was my turn again and so I requested some "Maverick Stars"
like these
3 1/2 " wonky star
Some are wonkier than others.
I received so many fun blocks and thought I should put
them all together in a quilt top.
I've been wanting to try some improv piecing and since
these blocks are all different sizes this was a perfect
opportunity to have a go at it.
This is what I have so far on my design wall.
I have about half of them pieced together.
Using low volume pieces between them.
Liking it so far......

Catching Up

       March came and went. I don't know why I put off making my Harmony Blocks of the month. Today I caught up and they really went together fairly quickly. Playing with the Ipad, it really takes nice pictures and I figured one way to get them into my pictures to download to both flickr and my blog. There is probably a simpler way , but maybe that's for another day.....

This block came from Moda Bakeshop
now I need to get back to my 'Easy Street"
It's on the quilting frame about half done!
