Purple and NASCAR weekend

Two of my most favorite things.
None of my driver's made it to Victory Lane, but I made it to the finish line with my purple blocks.

Finished my last two Squared Away blocks.

And I finished my purple Smitten Kitten.

It's only the 19th. Woo Hoo!!

No time for shutting down, but I feel better getting all of these done early because it is going to be a busy week.
Getting the van inspected, Quilt Show (woo hoo) and oh yeah--work!!! Lots of work.
I still have at least two things to get finished before the end of the month, so my fingers are crossed for me!!

Fruit of the Spirit Free Block of the Month

I am joining with Joy at Days Filled With Joy to host a free block of the month. It is a pattern we designed many years ago.

A new pattern will be available on the 10th of each month. If you sign up for Joy's newsletter, you will get your pattern sent to your inbox monthly.
It will be free until the next block comes out and then it will be available on her Craftsy page.

Go check out Joy's finished quilt. It is gorgeous!
More details can be found there as well.
I hope you will join us.

Hello Purple!!!

My favorite!!
I know I am late. I rarely get to sew on Saturdays and if I do, I don't have time to do a post.
So, my progress so far is:

 Two more mini blocks.

Lots of cutting.

Those piles are going to turn into these guys:

It is the February Squared Away block. It looks better on the table. It was so dreary outside I couldn't get a really good picture. It also doesn't look quite like the original because I boo booed and didn't figure it out until I finished.
It will stay and I suppose I need to do the other 2 the same way.

The kitty block is also cut out, so hopefully I will get some more constructing done before the weekend.
Saturday is a work day, so come on Sunday!!!
And come on sunny day! These clouds need to go away!
