QUBM and MMMRR peeks

Hi hi!  I just sent off the last rounds of the Quilt U Be Mine Round Robin to my two groups.  I had a blast doing all the rows!  I can't wait to see the reveal on Valentine's Day.  I also can't wait to see my two mini quilts.  I sent off the exact same block to both groups so it will be interesting to see what the differences are in each (or similiarities?).
For some reason I only took pictures of the last two additions that I made.  By far my three favorites though!  The first is a Dresden fan row.  Didn't get enough of the Dresdens when I did Dare to Dresden.
The second and third are both paper pieced rows.  They took me most of the weekend to do, but I still really liked doing them and am very excited for the lady who gets them - I could frame them and put them on my wall by themselves!
I am also sending off my center block for the Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin 2013.  I've been staring at a box of batiks from my Safari Quilt that I dug out of the closet a few weeks ago.  When I saw the pictures that Heidi over at Fabric Mutt took at the Road To California Quilt Show, I was inspired by one of the quilts to make my wonky centered block.  And those batiks were calling to me, and the giraffe fabric was REALLY screaming at me.  This is what came out.  I love it!
I hope the other ladies in my group enjoy working with it - I can't wait to see what happens to this one too :o)  Off to work on the baby quilt for my sister in law - lucky baby, all these great batiks, I want it!  I'll just settle for being the first to drool on it instead ;o).

  1. I like your sneak peaks....no idea which person's quilt they got added to. I know of course but I don't divulge secrets. LOL

    I like the center for the MMMRR 2013 too. I've seen a lot of browns this year. It will be interesting to see what it becomes.

  2. Very pretty......With all that sewing, when do you have time to sleep?

  3. I also did dresden borders for the Quilt U Be Mine. They did take a long time, and I loved every minute. I look forward to working with the browns and golds when it's my turn to add to your quilt.

  4. I'm curious to see which one I get. Love all of them.

  5. You have been busy! I like all your projects, especially the flying geese.
