Doin' a Happy Dance

It's been awhile coming.  Had a few distractions along the way, but today, I was thinking I still needed 20 more blocks to be one quarter of the way through my blocks...and then...

I copied the pattern and noticed that the pattern said 56" x 56" ...heh heh, not 56 blocks!  I was so relieved!  I only needed 36 blocks for the first set of four and I'm now more than one quarter of the way through~well at least the blocks part.

I've now tried at least something in each of the colors!    Now that I can see where I need to be going, I can take this from my design wall and save the blocks I have finished.  I'm not going to sew them together just yet.

While I needed a break from this, I've been sewing some tops.

I have some other starts and they will get sewn together at some time.  I am going to get a Sweet 16 next year, so these tops will await that machine, but I'm feeling pretty good with what I've got accomplished so far.

I also started some blocks, but decided I'd send them to a young budding quilter.  I boxed up the few I'd done, and a bunch of strings and some foundations...

I can't wait to see how she does with these strings!
