Although the excellent weather has been cutting into nap time, I've been keeping up with Lee's Bloom Bloom Pow QAL. In fact, it's been much harder to get this post up!

So here's my quilt top. I totally love it!! I think after all my purple problems, the purple bloom fits in perfectly. I am hopeful that after trimming I won't need to piece a back and I can get right to basting and quilting. Still not sure how I shall quilt it, or what to use for binding, but it's coming right a long!

I've also made good progress on the Chevron Baby Blanket. The pattern is free on the PurlBee website. I have two more colors to go and it's finished. Yay.

My LQS is doing a 100 blocks of summer club to make all of Tula Pink's blocks in her new book. I love the idea of working on that, but I have no idea how baby #3 is going to crash our naptime routine. I was also a bit overwhelmed at how to begin fabric choices, but after a suggestion by my good quilting buddy, I think I'm going to use my awesome stash of Glimma! I certainly have enough fabric to make all the blocks and if not, the shop is close by. I'm actually feeling pretty excited about it!

Now if I could just decide on a block to make for Flags of Boston.......I have to get that done by Friday. I'm just being rather indecisive.

That's it for now, linking up!


  1. I love the Bloom Bloom Pow quilt and the chevron. Also did you know The Intrepid Thread is having a Tula Pink quilt along where they are making all 100 blocks too. There is a flickr group. Some very interesting fabric choices showing up on it.Im not doing it but wishing I was. Good luck have fun

  2. I also signed up to follow your blog :)

  3. That is what I was going to suggest too! That will be perfect. I need to come up with a plan!

  4. I love the solids for the BBP! I have a 3 1/4 boy, he stopped napping last summer, ugh, and 13 month girl. We do quiet time for the boy for an hour every day, I have a box for each day with a special quiet time toy and/or activity. Nap/quiet time is never as productive as I want!
