peek-a-boo I see you...

I could not resist starting with this face...she is so animated that I hope she has brought a smile to your morning as she has done mine..that silly little Nosey...LOL...our job is done if you started out with a smile.


Sandy came by during the week..she loves the Love Letters quilt as well and wanted to make one. She has not done alot of applique so I am showing her the ropes. Sandy has ordered her book through Sew Sisters and using fabric out of her stash..next time I will post what she brought.
Sandy also loved the mini I had pieced earlier in the year and that she had quilted so she has made her own version with these wonderful beiges remember these strips are cut 7/8ths of an inch!!...wait till you see the finish..I imagine it to be a spectacular. I will post the finish when she is done..but I couldn't wait to show you what she has done already

I didn't want to post until I got my next block done..so here is block one of my Love Letters BOM that I am getting from Stitchin Heaven

I don't know why but I started applique'n block 3 and now have that one done block 3 is below


And had a chance to start block 2 you can see at the bottom right of the screen.. I have blocks 4 and 5 as well but are not pinned and ready yet. After I finish 3 I will prep them to get going on.

Here is a picture with all 3 together.. massive!! just 3 blocks and they take up my whole design wall!

I have not been at machine very much due to the applique and prepping plus been having quilting friends over... they give you so much incentive!! I will get back to my Reaching for the Stars quilt in the next 2 weeks.. got some great FQ's to use for the fill in stars...
I thought I would leave you with another sweet and happy face not sure if you can see the big smile she has, you can sure see some of her mother in her..dearest sweet Molly

Also thought I would show you a little harvest of Hydrangea's that I have dried to view during the winter.. lots of beautiful color with different kinds. The kitties will nibble on this during the winter months as well..but really don't hurt anything
Back to working on block 3 thanks for the visit love what you are also doing and following along.
this was another quick post.. hope to dwell on everyone else the next post. Hope you were able to visit the post before this one. Lekaquilts is also working on Love Letters as well but from a different BOM
