April Block Finish

20130413-095700.jpg

I finished the April block for the Sugar Block Club, and I really like it. Don’t you love the orange deer print? It’s from Momo’s Oh Deer line from Moda. So cute!

This was a paper pieced block and it went really quickly. I live how Amy (the pattern designer) includes instructions on what size to cut the fabric for the piecing. That way there isn’t a lot if wasted fabric.

Now I’m off to work on some other projects and hopefully get my closet organized. I was hoping to pack away my winter stuff but we are expecting more snow and cold on Monday and Tuesday. I won’t complain though because we need the moisture.

I also started Crossfit this week. My husband and I signed up for intro classes and we have finished the first three if six before we can move into the regular classes. I’m really loving it! It’s challenging and fun and constantly changing so it doesn’t get boring. Between that and running and eating clean, I’ve lost 7 lbs in two weeks! Yay!

Well I hope you have a great Saturday. I’m going to get out and enjoy the near 70 degree temps. I’ve even busted out my shorts for today.

Happy Crafting!

Finished Block of the Month

Well, I’ve finished my first block of the month for the Canton Village works BOM.  I really like how this turned out.  I decided to use my stash of Anna Maria Horner “Innocent Crush” fat quarters for this project.  I’ve been reluctant to cut into this stash because I wanted “just the right project”, but I’ve finally realized that any project is the right project.  So I took the plunge and I am happy I did.  Now I just can’t wait for next month’s block.  It’s hard for an impatient person to do just one block a month.  Oh well.  Patience.

I also finished a quilt top today that I’ve been working on for a while now.  I also got the backing fabric, so now all I have to do is ‘sandwich’ it and quilt it.  More later.
