It's been a busy week....

To catch up a little, last week I finished up the tumbler quilt that will be gifted to my friends first grand-baby.  Her name is Sophia Grace and I found the perfect backing fabric for this quilt.  The quilt was very easy to make since I used two die-cut tumbler packs that I purchased from Keepsake Quilting a few years ago.

I spent the week making cake pops for a friendly bake-off at work.  One night I baked the cake, the next formed the balls and finally another night spent coating the cake pops.  It was fun to try but a bit of a pain in the a$$, so I probably won't be making them again but I did end up winning second place!!


This weekend I spent some time in the sewing room and made a pincushion for the May swap at the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild meeting.  I used the Giant Pincushion pattern.



I also made a bit of progress on the May block for the Quilting Bee.  Charlotte is this month's Queen Bee and she wants to create a flower garden out of our blocks.  I thought I would try to do the folded flowers from the book "Fantastic Fabric Folding".  After a few failed attempts I managed to make two flowers.  The trick I found was to use the iron to crease as finger pressing just wasn't cutting it.  I'll post a picture of the completed block soon.
