Playing Catch Up... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 I spent part of Saturday trying to catch up on some blocks.  These are from the Lori Holt free Vintage Block Along.  Here is my design wall when I stopped for the day.  The applique blocks on the far left are not the same project.  :)
 I did this block and if I remember correctly it was 20"
 I also pieced these 4 and they are 5" blocks.
 Also this one....
 Then I was finished for the day.  Actually my mind still wanted to quilt but my body said "stop"  LOL!  In the end I am pleased with what I got ...

Full Design Wall... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 My design wall is getting full!  YAY!  I added more blocks yesterday!  So here is what I have going on....
 First off yesterday morning before daylight I wanted to piece a few blocks for myself before loading a customer quilt on the longarm.  Well....I guess it was too early or I was still half asleep.  LOL!  First off I cut the squares the wrong size and things were not coming out correctly.  I finally saw my mistake and had to pick them all out.
 Then I sewed this section backwards.  :(  Had to pick that out and redo it. 
 This ...

A little more progress... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 Felt a little better yesterday so I tried to get in a little quilting.  I'm loving this gold thread on this backing. 
 I still did not get it finished as my energy level is still not back to normal and I also had to do a little housework.  :(  I only have about 20 more minutes of quilting and then it will be finished and ready to ship out.  I am behind schedule now, I had put my back out then this horrid virus so I'm going to have to really buckle down and get some stuff done!
 As ...

Two New Quilters and Two New Blocks from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 Took me all day to get two more blocks finished yesterday.  Feeling some better but still not good.  My day pretty much went like this....sew, bathroom, nap, sew, bathroom, nap.  LOL! 
 This is the first one of the day.  Hard to really tell from the pic but the coral squares have a silver metallic polka dot, so not my normal.  :)
 Next was the house block.  It went together pretty quick.  Total of 4 finished and I think they are up to block 12 or so.  I'm hoping today that I can actually get to the longarm.  I tried ...

Dresdens... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

Yesterday didn't go as planned, but that's how it goes.  My plan was to get Richard out the door to work and Hunter to school then head upstairs and load a quilt on the longarm.  Before I even got upstairs mom called and said that my sister, Chantal was sick and she was taking her to the ER.  I watched my little niece, Addison while mom took her.  Long story short...Chantal has been having issues for over a year with her gallbladder and kept putting off having surgery but I guess we all tend to do that ...
