Blooming WIPs

This week has gone fast, it will do that when your work day is spent working towards a deadline for a big project.  I'm not the lead for the project (thankfully!)  but those of us filling "functional expert" roles have to finish our tasks by today.  I got home later than normal last night, but still found some time to wind down a bit in my sewing room.  

The Zombies quilt is my focus project for the month, but I can't work on just one thing. Poinsettias had to come off the design wall in order for me to put the Zombie blocks up.  But I'd gotten two sections of border attached before it came down.

Poinsettias Designed By Judy Blok for the December 2013 issue
of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine

The narrow red border is hard to see in this picture, it will be more visible when the next border goes on.  

The Blooms and Butterflies project is still up on the small design wall.

I'm really liking how this one is turning out.  The little butterfly blocks take some time to make, but they are such fun little blocks.

The butterfly blocks finish at 4", which is pretty small for me.  I used the block library in EQ to work out the size of the pieces for this block.  

Flowers and butterflies are some of my favorite photographic subjects, so it's been fun to work with them in the sewing room too.  It's nice have such bright and fun projects to come home and relax with.  

Linking up with Let's Bee Social and Needle and Thread Thursday

These are so pretty. I love the little butterflies. I think I made something similar once, and I do remember them taking a long time...lots of pieces.

This is such a pretty quilt! Light and airy, she's going to brighten your days on those cold, dreary winter days. Blessings, Gretchen

Lots of progress on all counts! Your photos are really nice, crisp and well lit.

Love seeing the additions to Blooms! It's such a bright and cheerful design. Although 4" butterflies, whew!

You are making bits and bounds with the time you have. Love your version of Bloom.

Both of these projects are great, but the blooms and butterflies especially draw my eyes.
