happy easter!

hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! we celebrated as we always do - with a huge potluck lunch, egg hunt, and kick ball game at the church hall.  it was a gorgeous day, full of sunshine, candy, and well behaved children. :)

i have a few bee blocks to share. sawyer took a long nap one afternoon, and it was nice to just stitch.

i worked on bee vintage blocks first. for josie, a scrappy tree! she's making a wall hanging, so raw edges were ok, thank goodness. i'm still pretty new at applique. she mentioned she loves owls. i used wonder under to hold the leaves in place. i'd like to try it again using the freezer paper method...

nikki wanted scrappy triangles.  these are made with film in the fridge's tutorial, and are simple and fun. she let us choose any solids we wanted for the outside, and so her finished quilt will be a rainbow of colors.

for the inspire group, we're doing a sort of framed floral for april's block. i made this one, and still need to do another. i don't know the name of the fabric, but i love how the centers have different prints.

i took an applique class from jenifer last week, and made a sweet little apple. today i finished up the rest of the block.

i started to quilt it but can't find my walking foot anywhere. i gave it a try, but it's puckering.  i'll probably rip out the stitches and try again with the right tool.

i still have a few more blocks to catch up on. plus some UFOs I'd like to knock out. what are you stitching today?
