Friday night I finally finished the first block of the $10 BOM at StitchCraft. I picked the neutral colorway.
This weekend I also finished working on my "Pointless Snow White" quilt. I had plans for it to be given as a gift to a friends new grand-baby this year but I was having such issues with the pattern. It was an easy pattern but way too many small pieced squares and lots of seams. I tried hard to keep a sharp point on my triangles but said "screw it" after awhile. Overall I am pretty happy with it and will keep it for myself. I even pieced the back this weekend too, so now I just need to quilt it (along with the six other quilts that need quilting).

And if that wasn't enough to complete this weekend (guess I'm making up for no quilting last weekend) I also pieced together a tumbler block quilt using some die-cut tumbler pieces I bought a few years ago. This is now the baby quilt to replace the Snow White quilt. Now I have an excuse to go to the LQS tomorrow to buy an adorable backing fabric.
Even though there was no quilting last weekend, I did manage to finish my Wingspan.
And I finally found yarn to match this beautiful machine. I told the owner, a wonderful southern gentleman nicknamed "Bubba", that I would make him a hat for those cold nights that he had to drive his roadster home.
