I made the last block for the quilt along - Children's Library.

I got the whole thing mostly done, I need to add a border.

I started putting together the smaller of the leaf blocks.   There's 28 of them and 12 big blocks.

I took my half-square triangle squares to work and during my free time I squared them down (or up).

Anyway, they are ready to become part of a quilt.

I took the day off from work - got a lot done.
And, I got the half square triangles sewn together for my next project.

Now, they just need to be squared up - down.

There's a pile of them.

Yes, I might be a little nutty. 

But - I am starting a new project.

Got the background cut out today.

I did get Chain Reaction quilted today.  I had lots of other things to do, but I got it done!  And it's off the machine.  Number Ten is in the books.  (except for the binding).

I was out in the studio before 7am and went to work quilting on Chain Reaction.  I got a good three rows and their sides done.  I even rolled it forward, unpinned the bottom side of the top and basted it down and then stitched in the ditch around all the remaining squares.  I'm all set to finish it up tomorrow.

I am now repeating patterns that I did on the first half.  I seem to be doing a much better job.
This 'Peony' is much better.  I've done quite a few of these now.
Darrell and I took the dogs to Lincoln Park then had sandwiches at Wildwood Market and Deli.  

I got my Mom's paint-by-number sunflower painting hung up finally.  I sent her a picture of my collection.

That's Mom's on the bottom left.
