Memorial Day weekend

Finally , a post.

I don't know what has come over me.  But I am sure ready for the end of the school year.  My patience has worn thin with a few of my 10th grade boys.  
But that is what makes it interesting.  We have two, count them 2 weeks left of school. Eight days for me, as I am going to miss the last day for a wedding in North Carolina.

But on to my quilting progress:.  I have had these beauties pieced for a while.  They are the 3rd stage of my Gooseberry patch.  I have applique holly in several parts, another 6 blocks of patchwork,  as well as 2 long rows of flying geese.  I like the progress.

Secondly, here are 30 blocks finished for my smallest grandson.  He is in a big boy bed.  And I still have not finished the one for the other grandson.  So I need to have them both done at the same time to be able to give them together.   These blocks go together quickly.  I did have my Stash Bee make some, too. But I only have 4 of them so far. Lots of progress from the original 4 blocks I posted at the beginning of the month. 

And the best part of the weekend was the birthday dinner for this four year old.


  1. I'm not a teacher, but I remember the end of school days before summer with my daughters... they couldn't get here fast enough. Your blocks for your grandsons quilt are so fun! I just love all of the colors and the design. :)

  2. Woot woot! I can understand the 8 day countdown! Our last day is June 7th so 8 days here as well. I work year-round but sure can feel the excitement in the air. I love the picture of the birthday boy and his candles. HB! He looks so cute blowing out those candles. And your quilt for him is beautiful. He will just love it. Happy Tuesday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I like those colorful square blocks. Pretty!
