Busy Bees all over the House

It's a busy Wednesday and time to check in on what we're really working on around the house! I've been working hard slicing and connecting the blocks of Josh's Building Blocks Quilt:

It's so exciting to see this quilt come together! It's such a testament to building skill and I'm so pleased to see how the connecting binding hiding a lot of stitch issues along the edges of the blocks. Josh picked the binding fabric, which really makes the blue and gray fabric come together, so even though I'm connecting the squares and binding, it's still HIS quilt!

Speaking of Josh, he's busy packing orders and listening to music in the office:

Don't ask how I got him to make this terrific smile

Upstairs Dad is drawing quilting designs on his computer to create the line drawings we use for patterns. We're already working on the stitch diagrams for next year's quilt along and may be able to have stencils ready when the quilt along starts.

Whew! We certainly do have a lot going on. Now I'm heading back downstairs to finish up Josh's quilt and get cracking on my next BIG project!

Let's go quilt,
