What's Up 3.20.17

Here it is the first day of spring and here in Oklahoma the predicted temperature for today is 90. That is just too early for being this hot, I'm not ready for summer heat, it's just the first day of spring.

It's been a couple weeks since I last wrote and some good and bad events have happened. Right now I'm just going to focus on the good.

Last week I was able to go on a mission trip with my church to Kansas City. I was able to help out in a Community Kitchen  and it was a great experience. If you live near Kansas City they are always in need of volunteers and the link tells you about their mission and how to contact them.



Seeing how I've been gone I have done very little sewing.
Up on the wall is the blocks I started back in 2015 for the RSC that year. 



The pattern is Thimble Blossoms by Red Letter Day



These are the color choices I picked for the last blocks
I'm making 16 blocks and have 5 left to do.



All the prints are 30's reproductions, how fun is that.

Time Flys

It's hard to believe it's been two weeks since I last wrote. 
I have been very productive tho.



I was able to complete my string quilt and love how it turned out. 




Can't say that it made a dent in the strips.





I also machine quilted the turquoise baby quilt. Nothing fancy just some straight lines and waves around the outer border.
Now it's ready to be given away.

Now I can say Yeah!!!!!

The Farmer's Wife 1930 quilt is done.



I did a different setting than the book and didn't use all the blocks I made. I'll have to find something else to use the remaining ones.




Turned out OK



Measures out to be 86 x 93. 

So now on the design wall is my OMG for this month 



it is one of the RSC I started in 2015

Have 10 blocks but I'll need six more to go.
