The next button is for the 2013 Finish A Long. Yes i've decided that i need to join this one, if only for my own sanity. Even if i only finish one project it will have been worth it. I've already missed the first quarter but am stoked for the second! It's already inspired me to pull out some projects and get started. I know! The second quarter hasn't even started yet and i'm already trying to finish things off.
I started by pulling out some of my Out To Sea blocks, and decided i needed to add some star blocks into the mix.
So i whipped up these two blocks from the book Modern Blocks and love how they turned out. I think i'll make some more single stars in different sizes to go along with the rest. I also have plans to make some blocks up using some of the pirate fabric. This quilt is definitely going on the finish a long list, i need to get it done.
The next project i tackled today was my Anna Maria Horner Little Folks voile hexies.
I'm in no real rush to finish these, i knew going in that i would be sewing these by hand and it was going to take some time. That being said assembling this block has sparked me to get more done.

|even the back is pretty!|
Also on my list for today... (can you tell the boys weren't home today? i never would have been able to get all this done.)
...my Narwhal Hunt quilt. I had a few lines of quilting that i needed to remove (sewing machine issues), and then about ten more lines to add. I also managed to get the binding machine stitched on the front, so as soon as i hand stitch it to the back i'll post up more photo's.
Not bad for a day's work.
Super productive high fives!
