My Only Block of the Month Block is DONE!

Last year I did so many block of the months, I didn't think I got enough of my own projects done.  So this year I promised myself I would refrain from signing up for any more than just the FQS Designer Mystery.  (I already signed up for next years too that starts in May or June I think.)  I also have all the setting blocks and borders cut and ready to assemble.

Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Quilt -block 11

But that's not all I've been up to.  I finished 3 quilt tops and got 5 quilts pinned. 

One is our guild's mystery quilt that I finished, the 2nd was a very old UFO quilt (the red, white and blue) and I finished the Road 2 California Sew Kind of Wonderful class quilt - Metro Rings.  While I was pinning I marked and pinned my Coxcomb quilt top (that I've had done for over a year) and spray basted a charity quilt.  Whew.  My neck, shoulders, back, etc. were so sore after being on the floor to pin those - but they are done.  Now I just need inspiration to start quilting.  But first, I have to go visit my dad which I plan to do this weekend.  I also need to take my sister-in-law out for a belated birthday lunch and movie.  So no quilting for me this weekend.

Last night I had the Loose Thread Art group ladies over for dinner and the choosing of our second colors for our two color quilt challenge.  My first color was blue-green.  Then last night violet was chosen for my 2nd color.  We can't use any other colors - but we can use anything of those colors - beads, fabric, fibers, paint, thread.  You get the picture..

I also broke down and bought myself a new laptop.  It's Windows 10 so I'm still getting used to it.  I decided to get a Toshiba over a Dell -which is the only computers and laptops I've ever had.  But they were getting such bad reviews.   My sister Brenda send me some vinyl letters for my new baby.

Thank you for looking.  I'll post pictures of the finished quilts as they are completed.
