Creation is messy! Mini aprons done!

My dining room table!! Kinda messy, but I am working on like 5 projects right now. My mom sent me that Home Depot shopping bag, and once you open it, it is HUGE!! I use it to take all of my supplies to quilting class. I think it might be strong enough to hold my featherweight too.

This is one of the strips for that quilt I started in class the other night. I really like the way it looks so far. I am just throwing the pieces together without any consideration for color, etc. I have four more sections to make, then the first border, then the outer border which uses 1000 two inch blocks!! I am determined to be done within 3 weeks though! I DID NOT buy any fabric for this quilt (except for the white) and I am not buying any for the next few either.
I made these mini aprons for a swap at MJF!! I dreaded making them at first, but after walking through Micheals today, I got some ideas and went to work. They are done. Now I am making a tea cozy for another swap (my friend is actually my partner this time!!) and cannot wait to get that one going. I have a fun idea that I think she will like.

whoooo hoooo!!! so glad you got those dratted minis out of the way!! I think we need to convince Kathie to start a different type of swap~I love to swap but I'm mini'ed out at this point, although yours are pretty darn cute. ;)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your quilting style Sheryl-lyn. Your blocks ALWAYS look like they were found in great-granny's trunk, like timeless little bits of family history.
