Very, very cute, indeed!  I can see some little kid resting in bed too excited to take a nap because he or she has to talk to Winnie the Pooh ....

I am doing the Instagram Quilt Fest this year. All month we get a prompt each day for a post.  Todays prompt was about quilt classes. I had something in mind that was in my giant UFO bin. Since DBIL was not at the shop today I decided to pull everything out of the box and laid it all out. I am happy to say there really were not many block swap blocks left. Lots of things just need borders and such. Well I found my second ever block I ever made and used it for my Instagram post. It is still half quilted. I realized this is my oldest UFO. I have decided to finish this next out of the block and make the pillow I had planned way back in 1984. The project is entirely hand done. My teacher had us make our own templates, cut it out with scissors, draw the stitching lines, hand piece, needle turn applique and hand quilt. What a great piece to learn all the techniques. I still like the color choices too. 

While going thru the bin I pulled out a few other projects to complete into finished tops as well. I also came up with some plans to combine some of the things rather than make more blocks why not use several blocks in one quilt that have the same colorway.

Not much activity on the forum lately.  So I thought I’d post here today.  I just sorted some of boxes at church and took out 4 or 5 boxes of stuff to give to a charity begging for fabric to use.  Lol.....

I laughed and said I had overflow!  I came home and packed up 2 more boxes.   One load going out tomorrow!  I know there is more to sort thru and share at church, but I did the easy access boxes today.

I hope they make good use of these boxes!

DD took a "personal day" at work today and came home for her dad's 80th birthday. After a good meal, birthday cake, etc. she helped me load quilt parts on HQ 18 Lily Aurora so perhaps I'll get that last quilt top quilted later this week.

Side note; while cleaning out a cabinet in our library a few months ago I came across a photo album of my mother's and I've been organizing this album, typing up notes on the old photos. (Nothing fancy like Pirate probably has been doing, just adding captions, so to speak.) 

Anyhow, one picture was a four generation photo taken in 1914 featuring my dad's sister as an infant, her mother Faye, her grandmother Lillian (nicknamed Lily) and Lillian's mother Aurora. DD was flipping through the pages of this work in progress and she stopped at this old photo . "Mom, here are your sewing machine names!!"

Yep, my classic vintage Singer  201-2 is Cecil Faye (for both of my grandmothers; Cecil's photos are also in the album of old pictures.)  We were kind of giggling over how those ancestors would be flabbergasted at our modern versions of quiltmaking.
