That's Typical...for ME

In typical Jen fashion I was quilting a quilt tonight on the frame and ran out of thread.  I found a substitute but decided to call it a night.  I can finish it off tomorrow night.  Of course it was my favorite spool of thread so I'll need to order a replacement.

After that, I moved into my Quilt Studio to work on this weeks Sylvia's Bridal Sampler block - C5 Lady of the Lake.  You typically see this block done in blue and white BUT since the challenge fat quarter this month will be the green print I had to get cre8tive.  I went with Green & Yellow.  I love how quick this block goes together.

Speaking of quick and easy...tomorrow's Wisconsin Quilt Blocks on Barns Block will be another easy one.  I figured I'd ease you all into my crazy paper piecing world little by little.  I don't want to scare anyone off!!  =)

OOOOOO and I just realized that as of today the Quilt Retreat that I'm going to in April is under 100 days away!  I'm so excited!!

Your block rocks! Even for me who doesn't like green, I can say it looks good. I can't believe it's less than 100 day till retreat! I hate when I run out of thread, but it's usually on Sat. night or Sun. and I have to wait till Monday to get more.
