no, i haven't stopped sewing...yes, life has been hectic the past 5 years....with that said here's what I've been working on...
i'm currently taking a BOM class at my local quilt shop, The Quilt Shoppe...we are using Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Block. i'm using a FQ bundle of Meadowbloom by April Rosenthal for Moda.

Bottom - October: Art Square and Mosaic #8now i know what you're thinking...it's only the beginning of july (class is tomorrow) and that I already have the blocks done.
well......i had to or i'd never get the blocks done in time. you see, i'm preparing myself to go back to work...i should be receiving my call back any day now and when i do go back to work, i'll be working 7 days/week, with 12 hour shifts until January/February 2017.
there are several layout options in the book to finish the quilt. i already know what i'm going to do, but i'll leave that as a surprise for now, since i still have classes to go to and show off my individual blocks.
now for some fun.....
with this being the my return post i thought what a better way to celebrate than with a GIVEAWAY...$15.00 worth of fabric/books from my etsy shop.
To Enter: Go to my etsy shop and look around...lots of fabric for sale...a lot of de-stash material at a really great price.
