Sue Spargo workshop!

One of my guilds had a 3 day Sue Spargo workshop last week.  It was so unbelievable to stitch for 3 days with Sue there.  She brought so many wonderful embellishments.  I went home with a few new threads.  Here is the block I completed.  It is 6"  square.  We each had a packet of patterns and backgrounds and could do any embellishments we wanted to do.  I used this time to try out new stitches I had not done and to ask for Sue's guidance. 

Lots of new modern quilts done and dumpster diving

I have had several WIP quilts that all seem to be bright modern colors.  I had a chance to quilt them over the past several weeks and have them all pictured here.
 See the blue rocker - scored that from a dumpster.  It will be great for the garden and large pots of flowers

I had this applique center from a workshop.  Pulled out my Piece of Cake scraps and finished the quilt

Quilt for Sophia

We have a new baby in the family.  Sophia Marie was born March 29th to Jennifer and Bryan.  I had several quilts in mind to send her but this is the one I picked.  It's been shipped off to Ohio with several books.  I know Jennifer loves to read so I think this little one will too.
