Caught Up,,,

...Almost! I still have one BOM to do, it's a paper pieced star. I don't know why I'm putting it off. Maybe it's all the prep work. Cutting all the pieces takes time and thought and I'm not up to that right now. ;-)
These are the C blocks from the Pinwheels On Parade Party.
All caught up and ready for the D blocks and sashing.

These are all of my Jelly Roll Sampler blocks from the Moose on the Porch Quilt Along.
I am using strips from a "scrap" bag that I bought last year. None of the strips are a whole width of fabric so I get to play around with the blocks and make some a bit more scrappy.

This is the finished Care Bear top that will get loaded on the long arm next. This is number 2 on my focus on four list. I can't wait to see Clella's face when she sees this. She does love her Care Bears.

Then there is the hexagon quilt-a-long over at jaybird quilts that I have resisted starting but my resistance is dwindling and I think I will start that soon. I have a bin stuffed full of batik strips and this will be a great place to use them. Stay tuned, you know I'm going to show pictures soon!

But if I'm going to meet my stash usage goal of 100 yards by May 1st, I need to get my buns working. I only have 3 1/2 days left to get 'er done!!!

We quilters are never caught up! But your project looks wonderful! I love the blue and white "D" blocks and sashing! Nothing better than blue and white! The care bear top is adorable! Perfect for a little girl!!! So sweet! Keep quilting!

The Care Bears quilt is lovely and will bring delight every time it is used.

You are definitely making some great-looking blocks. Nice job!

love your jelly rolls--that's terrific that your using real scrap strips they look great, even tho' it probably takes a few more minutes to figure out what's going to work--way to use that stash, and the Care bear quilt -so sweet & cuddly looking!
and your pinwheels geeze girl your smokin'!

Nice job on your BOMs. Love the Care Bear quilt. I've seen Jaybird's hexagon quilt-along too. No wonder I have an issue with self-control! LOL

Hexagons tempt me too but as interesting as the quilt along looks I'm going to resist although it does give me some ideas for a quilt down the line.
