Happy San Jacinto Day to ya'll:)

This week went by pretty fast with lunch bunch and sewing at June's this week and then that day I had to go buy groceries:( Just too many things going on!!!! I am home most of this week so I will be back to quilting customer quilts:) since they want them next month I better get moving May is fast approaching!

I did get a few more of mine done:)

I am taking Angela Walters Feathers class through Craftsy... if you haven't looked there you really need to! And I practiced my feathers on this Project Linus. These are the Custom Feathers. Really turned out like....awesome!!!!! There are more feathers in the future for me!

Ok I was doing a Mug Rug Blog Hop and then needed a gift and wala! I am now a mug rug maker:) The buttons are for you to place your cookies on:)
Happy Birthday Shelley:) She already got it and likes it:)

 
Here are 2 more of my curved blocks:) Am SO loving this series!!!! The free patterns are from Sew Kind Of Wonderful.

 
Ok on to some quilting:
This is the itty bitty twister heart.

 
A table runner that is the result of a class I took last year:) The border fabric is what made the center blocks:) Too much fun!


 
The bigger Heart Twister:) The othere was made with the leftovers from this one:) I know sew a top together, cut it apart and sew back together, then sew the scraps together and then cut them apart and sew back together.
Is there like a therapy group for me somewhere???? I will attend if they have chocolate:)



I saw this heart echo quilting on Pinterest and had to give it a try:) Love it!
 Love the backing fabric too!!! I am ready for Valentine's Day:)

 
My new BOM from Fat Quarterly Shop. It is Jaybirds Toes in the Sand. Yes I made the first 2 blocks the day after I got it:) Want to stay on top of it!!!!

 
FIL update:) He is off the bag...has been for about a month:) His cancer has decreased 50% on one side and 70% on the other:) So he is done with the meds:) No side effects:) He is his old self... laughing and joking again:) Praise God!!!!! Thank you for all the prayers!!! They will be coming to visit sometime soon..... won't be anything like we thought it was going to be 2 months ago!
