It's finally Friday again, and in addition, an unencumbered Friday!  Now that the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop is over, we can get back to whooping it up - so let's get started!!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Well, as you know, for nearly two weeks I was working on the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop and quilt-along. During that time, I also finished a t-shirt quilt for a friend that had a really short deadline.  I didn't get to work on anything much that required a lot creativity during that time... so sad!  I ...

I made a couple of new items to put in my friend's shop this week - first up is this softly-colored table runner.  I particularly love the fact that it used up a charm pack that had been in my drawer for about three years!


I cut the charm pack into quarters to get 2.5" squares and just mixed them ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Most of my week was taken up with a quilting marathon, because we have 25 quilts that have to be finished by the end of May, and our quilting machine at church is "feeling poorly".  That means that I had to fire up Jolene for a marathon of quilting!  So here's what I've done so far this week...






So that ...

When I saw Jamie's tutorial for the "Have Faith" block, I knew I needed to make a scrappy version - so here's "Mermaid In The Middle"!  This quilt was made using fifty ten inch squares and 25 random fat quarters, so it made a good dent in my scrap stash - woohoo!!
