I have been very very busy..............

I have been very very busy this month. This was the first clue in the Dorinda Mystery that I am doing. Clue 2 is a secret at this time, so I can only show you a peek......................











So here it is>>> my theme is star in a star, I couldn't believe I actually had fabric that matched that! Watch for the whole block next time I post.

 I also went from fat quarters to finished top for the Monochromatic challenge. Now I need to piece the back, and then service my machine to make sure it is running smoothly ( it is starting to make weird noises) then I get to quilt this one and the Turtle Bay quilt that I got the back done for as well. I forgot to take a photo of that.
The Layer Cake quilt along block 7 is out, and this is my block, it looks a little washed out in this photo. I am also still sewing string blocks from the RRCB, and still have close to 600 HST's to do too!!!

Block-A-Palooza started on Monday they are posting new blocks every Monday and Thursday. I am going to sew those two blocks as soon as I get this post done.

Are you doing any of these challenges?? Or any others that you would like to share??

I'm doing a lot of the same ones you are.

Sampler quilts are something new to me, so I'm really enjoying myself!

You've got a lot on your plate, but it looks like you're making excellent progress. I've just been watching several people do the RRCB quilt, and I'm enjoying see how it's turning out for them. Nice job on everything!

Wow, Ann Marie, you have been busy! Your blocks are beautiful... I'm not doing any of those challenges, mainly because I've got 3 UFOs from last year that were quilt-alongs! I'm focusing on finishing them this year!

On a separate note, and this is just my opinion, and not designed to solicit a response from you, but I have struck up some very good friendships in the past year by responding to comments on my blog - and learned a lot from some much more experienced quilters by asking them questions about their process. If they hadn't answered me back, I'd be so much more in the dark! Just something to think about....
