I was able to get my center together for the Star Light Star Bright quilt along. I really like how this one is turning out and I'm very happy with my color selections. Hop on over to see all the quilt along instructions at Happy Quilting.
I spent one evening last week working on my quilting sampler. It's a lot harder than it looks, but I had a great time and really enjoyed practicing different techniques. I have a Doodle Quilting book I am following for different ideas. These are Swirly C's.
Back and forth. This looked a lot different in the book, so it's something to work on.
I recently received a travelling stash box, so I was excited to see everything in it. I took a few things out.
And found a whole lot of things to put in. It was fun playing. Mathew and Mikaela helped me select what I should keep. I'll be sending the traveling stash box on to its new home, so if you are interested, please leave a comment and I'll pick a winner at the end of this week.

Important Things to Remember:
This is a sample for a new class I plan to teach. This is the inside. I did the cotton version since we already have a laminate one at the shop. I figure it will be good for one of the guys in my life.
I got this far by last night and just have to put it together with the bias binding on the inside.
Mikaela and daddy made me a chocolate strawberry cake for my birthday. She was insistent that she help put the candles in the cake. There weren't nearly enough and she blew them out herself, but it was fun all the same. She's at such a fun age to help with everything.
