All WIPped Up!

If you're looking for my Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway, click here! You can still enter daily through Friday (May 25th)!

WOW! What a whirlwind week!  TGIFF, Bloggers' Quilt Festival and Sew, Mama, Sew's giveaway day - CRAZY!

Sew what did I work on....

I finished my Storybook Quilt - Yippee Skippee! I entered it in the Spring 2012 Bloggers' Quilt Festival - its number 263.
Storybook Quilt  - # 263 at the Bloggers' Quilt Festival
There's a whole lot of nominating and voting going on over at the quilt festival. I would like to ask that you consider nominating and voting for my quilt for favorite bed quilt. Here is the nomination form, you will need to enter my quilt number 263

Look through all of the quilts they are pretty amazing.  As a matter of fact you should consider my friend (and FLMQG member) Julie's quilt (number 449) for favorite applique quilt. The quilt has quite an amazing story, check out her blog - Julie's Quilts!

I also created another block for QuiltCon - Goin' Fribbon Egg-Shaped!
I'm really working on wonky! I love the look of wonky/improvisational block, but struggle letting go of my ruler. So the only ruler I used on this block was my Quick Curve Ruler (LOVE that ruler)!

So does two finishes make up for not working on a lot of projects??? I hope so!
