Design Wall Monday

Hi all,

I've been too busy to post on blogger but I have been quilting. Here is a picture of me taking a photo of myself (being silly) so at least my sense of humor is in tact.

I pieced a couple to tops not included in this post and have some scrap quilting club photos that need to be edited and uploaded. Mostly, I've been helping family members with their income tax returns and preparing for quilt lecturers.  Here is a photo of six containers of quilts I took to Piecemakers Quilt Guild last month.
 Hanging Garden is a top I recently completed that is part of my scrap quilting club group.  Next month I'll upload some different variations.
 My t-shirt quilt is stalled.  I received two more shirts that I cut and arranged, getting ready to start sewing but then a couple more people contacted me that will donate some shirts.  I will not receive them until the end of the month so I started working on other projects.  I'll work on this again in May or June.

I have had fun piecing this quilt top.  It still needs a border or two attached.  All the blocks are from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 2.  These blocks either have a heart theme or used valentine type fabrics.  It's a little busy but I like it. The setting is an adopted from a Maple Island quilt pattern.
And I finished the applique block that I've had on hold for over a year.  It's an Apple Blossom pattern.  Sadly, the is the 5th block of 30.  I don't think I'll make all of them but I will make a few more.
