I picked out my fabrics, sticking to purples, mint greens, and pinks. Some of the fabric here is from the Hope Chest line at Connecting Threads. I added to it from stash fabric.
I laid everything out on my dining room table and did my best to distribute the colors. I had only 15 fat eights to work with rather than 20 (hence the turning 20 name), but I am happy with it. I was able to start sewing a few blocks before my youngest woke from his nap.
Later, I was able to quilt more on the 30's repro quilt. All of the hearts are done now, and I am now working in the alternate blocks, filling in with loops. After last evening, I was able to finish half of that. I think I have about 7-8 hours of quilting in it thus far. I have grand plans for the border, but I def. need to practice a bit first! I am thinking feathers and hearts.
Finally, while watching Bones I was able to quilt some more on my GFG quilt. I would LOVE to have it finished by Spring, so I need to do as much as I can on winter break. Starting in January, I have an internship and second job which will eat into any quilting time I have. I suppose I need to spend SOME time with the family!
