Free pieced block


Spring break is over. Yeah! It was fun while it lasted but I'm glad the kids are back in school and I can get some things done. I've got to get this quilt quilted.
However, I did get a little something done this past week. I made this block for Jacqui (at Tallgrass). I just pieced it with left overs I had and it was so much FUN! The possibilities were shouting at me the whole time I was piecing this block. I am definitely coming back and doing more of these after I get my big quilt quilted.
Now I'm going to get ready tonight. I am the guest speaker for The Crossroads to Texas Quilt Guild tonight. Yipee! I am taking 30 quilts and I get to talk about my favorite subject (quilting) and they are going to pay me! Yee-haw! I'm living my dreams today! I hope there are others out there doing the same, cause this feels great! Happy Quilting!
