Ready for the weekend!

At least half of a weekend... I worked at the quilt shop all day yesterday.  I did get to play all day long on Friday, though, so I can't complain!  I enjoyed spending my day in a class by Cynthia Brunz of Quilting is More Fun than Housework.  It was great to meet Cynthia - we've been friends online for quite a few years and I was glad for the opportunity to meet in person.  She's a great teacher, and a very talented quilter as well!  I got a lot of great tips for dealing with my out of control stash in the class.  The class was for her  Geese Migration quilt.  When we got to the middle of the afternoon we all pooled our blocks together to get some ideas for arranging them when we are ready:

Isn't it cool how all of these blocks are made from 11 different peoples fabrics, but they all go together so wonderfully?  I've got five blocks done so far, and want to make at least 25 total, but maybe even more to make a bigger quilt. We'll see!

I've been spending a little time here and there working on my project for this month's Island Batik Ambassador challenge and it's starting to come together.  Just one more star to add and it will be time to figure out how in the world I want to finish this.  I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but I am enjoying the hand stitching - who knows, I may become a fan of EPP yet!

Don't forget, there is still time to enter to win the final giveaways for the My Happy Place blog hop - visit my post for an opportunity to win a Martelli Rotary Cutter and Blades, as well as links to the other posts with giveaways!  Thank you for all the nice comments - I've been really touched at the positive response to my row pattern - I've even spotted one in progress on Instagram!

Linking up with Kathy for Slow Stitching Sunday, as well as Cynthia for Oh Scrap.

How amazing those blocks look altogether. even more amazing that different ladies stitched them. I am loving your EPP project. It will look beautiful when finished.

I've never done EPP, but it sure makes for a perfect looking project. Nice!
