new year quilting finally

I have finally gotten to sew in the new year. January was almost a no sew month due to a family emergency. I was gone for 3 1/2 weeks of January. So when I got back home I had to take care of the house and laundry so I did a little sewing on my Vintage Farm Girl blocks and started a customer quilt in the long arm.  Then last weekend went back to my daughter's to watch the grandsons so that she could go to a stitcher's retreat that had be planned for months and Dad could work.  Really enjoyed the weekend with the boys.    On Sat morning was a retreat morning for us too.  Dylan who is 14  did videos and Brandon who is 8 played with play-mobile people and watch video of them and I started a lap quilt.    I got the blocks ready to sew.  Had a great morning  here are pictures of my end of the table for cutting and organizing my blocks and second picture is my temporary ironing station. Sewing machine was in the basement so went down there to sew first step of blocks.

This week I got the quilt done in the long arm   and finished Jan, Feb, and Mar  farm girl blocks. I am doing these with the Olney Quilt guild as a monthly project  so I am ahead of schedule which is unusual for me.    I am doing the 6 inch size  a lot of the group are doing the 12 inch size.  they are so fun.

Now I need to work on my Quilter's Garden by Edyta Sitar  a small group of us from my sew group are doing this as a BOM.  started this in Jan  not sure I got both of my blocks done at retreat in Jan before left town.  

Happy sewing.
