Charlie Brown..

I have felt like Charlie Brown when Peppermint Patti pulls the football before he can kick it! This block has used every ounce of patience I have. This last row of curved piecing was a great challenge. I finished it just in time for June's clue! Thank you "The Quilt Show" for challenging those of us who like to stay in our own little box...lol

Keeping up....

 This quilt has almost made it to the finish line. Shabby Fabrics Block of the Month pattern.
 I love my little quilt stand. I have been trying to make a quilt for each season to display. This sits in my sewing room under a window. The butterflies were hand appliqu├ęd, my favorite quilting technique.
The arcs are April's clue for "The Quilt Show BOM" (there are 18). May's clue is to make 18 more arcs and add a small border between the stars and arcs. This quilt has been a real challenge for me, so I am trying to keep up with each month.
