Some Progress

I am making some continuing progress on my block-a-month project and have completed two more blocks.  I realize that it doesn't seem so speedy, but was in part because I had to re-make the blue block.  I thought (perhaps) I knew better than the pattern and altered the size of a couple of the blocks - thinking to make them fit better.  Yes, well - it didn't go together correctly, in the end, so there was nothing but to do it over.  Note to self:  just like Ikea instructions (as my friend Caro says) you must follow them, as written.

These Aunt Gracie-like fabrics are fun and while busy, I really do like them. 

Also got the blocks together for the high school graduation quilt I started a while back. [3 blocks by 4] This gal is going to college in southern California, so no wool batting required.  Something pleasant but not too heavy.  I hope that friend Alayne will be able to fit this into her quilting schedule.
Tomorrow is the CTA fabric sale.  This will be the second sale - folks are asking if it is annual, but I'm not sure.  It is a lot of work, but we earned a fair amount of money last year.  So I'll let you know how it goes.  [When all was said and done the church rummage sale - which you read about here - earned over $34,000.  Incredible.  Today was the lunch to plan where the money will be donated.  Sure feels good.]
