Project progress

So, I've been working on a few things since my last post.

My rhino quilt is all basted and folded neatly on the big chair. Here's what I did for the back:

And the backing where I cut the backing fabric out behind the big rhino applique:

Here's an evening (poor light) basting shot:

After I got the rhino all ready to quilt, I didn't want to start quilting yet, and I decided to make a couple blocks for my #apqquiltalong project. I ended up making 4 this past week. I really like this one:
 Took 56 minutes to sew. #apqquiltalong
For now, I'm planning on making (at least) 2 blocks a week until I get all 20 of them done. I have 7 so far.

I also finished round 13 on my hand pieced trip around the world. Pink henna garden fabric, so sweet.

Finally, just wanted to share my tutorial on Louise's Sew Ready to Play series. Her blog is I'm Feelin' Crafty and it was fun to make a project to share with her readers. I made a Uno card case so we can keep our new Uno cards from getting all bent and lost. See my tutorial here

Have a great weekend!

I'm growing a pile of "to be quilted" projects, too... :) One of these day's I'll get brave and put on the darning needle and try some FMQ. I can't wait to see what you do with your rhino. I love that pattern!

Awww Vicki, you're from the can DO group of moms! I love it ;o) When our kids were growing up and the box wore out, it was a rubber band around the cards lol. But hey, I'm gonna be a really cool Mamaw when it comes time to bring games to the grandchildren. (Just recently learned that our first is on the way) I love the way your trip around the world is going. Thanks for sharing, Sarah
