How was your weekend??

I have made a lot of quilting progress during the Quilt a thon this weekend. First thing I did, on Saturday, was the bottom three string blocks for the Heartstrings Charity quilts. I also added the binding to my Postage stamp basket table runner.
Then Sat Night I picked out fabrics for the Santa block. Today I started by working on the background pieces for the Santa block. I was surprised at how easily it went together!! I bonded the pieces and will applique the edges on my machine using a blanket stitch. I have a long way to go yet but it will be done before Christmas.
Then I picked up my four patch posies. I made the blocks pictured and I have 8 more and none of them are the same. I have so much fun with this block. It is mesmerizing to me. I am going to make a throw sized quilt.
I still did a lot of house work, I went to Church and shopping. AND we did get about 10 inches of snow. Check out snowman cam. The snowman cam is about 20 miles from my house but you get the gist of the weather.

Wow! You got a lot done. I tried to reply to your post on my blog, but not sure it went anywhere as it didn't have your email addy. Glad you had such a successful day.

the four patch posey blocks are amazing! i'd like to see what that fabric looked like before you started cutting. was it just a single flower scattered on the background? it was an EXCELLENT choice for the technique!
