Supernova Quilt, Japanese Quilt, and gardening...


I finally feel all caught up on the Supernova Quilt-a-long.  Here's the blocks all done, waiting to be sewn together (hopefully today).  This is only my 2nd scrap quilt, but I'm rapidly falling head over heels for them!  I can barely wait to start another!

Since I'm all caught up, I got out my Japanese Quilt.  IF I can get it done on time (I'm hoping blogging about it will help), I'm hoping to donate it to Quilter's Newsletter's collection that they have going on right now.  Got to get busy!

We had a great week-end, and I'm starting to realize that my quilting stuff will soon be taking up less and less time, as I spend more time in the garden.  The kids are counting weeks (!) left until summer, so once these quilts are done, I'll probably be sewing and blogging less and less.

Luckily my husband is at work today!  We're still waiting for the final federal budget vote later this week before we relax a bit.  I am so grateful that he has a good job, and that he's at work today!!!  We all really do depend on him a great deal, and while I sometimes get frustrated not being able to continue my career with his, at times 24/7 schedule and 2 kiddos, I sometimes forget that in return he has to shoulder the entire weight of providing for all of us financially.  I really do appreciate it!!

Your supernova looks fab! I may be doing a little caseing of your layout, if I ever have time to sit down and cut my fabric! :)

I like your Supernova blocks! It's great to see one with the blocks all very similar in colors. It's beautiful. Great work.

Love your supernova quilt and the fact that you too used scraps. My garden anxiously awaits the sun and some dry weather. We better get our quilting time in while we can.

Looking good! I know I said this before, but I just love how the arrangement of your colors changes the look of the design. It's almost like lattice or something. So cool.

OMG, (I'm so behind reading blogs) your Supernova is amazing! Ok, I have almost finished one block and it has taken me forever. Please tell me the learning curve will be a steep one and I'll get better very fast!
