making progress

I've been plugging away at some old UFOs and have been making some good progress on my 1st Qtr Finish along projects.

A couple of weeks ago I took the stack of improv grey and yellow blocks that I won at a Vancouver MQG meeting, oh a couple of years back now, and fiddled and sliced and fiddled some more and put them together into a top that I was happy with.  I pieced some grey and yellow Grunge fabric together for a backing, and this past weekend I got it sandwiched and the quilting started.

marked some concentric circles and then free motioned them before doing a little ruler work

I worked away on it and it is now finished!  Yay!

Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network this week - go see what other Canadian bloggers are up to!

Happy quilting! Janet
