Needle and Thread Thursday!

Welcome to another Thursday, y'all!  I'm feeling pretty excited this week, because I'm working on blocks that are lots of fun to make with fabrics that I just adore.  Remember this little bundle?

Well, I'm working away on turning those into these Purse Strings blocks.  I only have ten done so far, but I have an evening of sewing time ahead and hope to have the top finished up before the weekend.

If you missed my tutorial for these blocks, you can find it HERE!  I finished another project using these blocks (just a little one), but I can't share it with you for awhile.  I'm horrible at secret-keeping and knew that I wanted to share the block, even if I couldn't share that particular project, which is why I immediately poured myself into making a project that I could write about!

Without further ado, take a look at some of the fabulousness that was linked up last Thursday!

Cynthia shared this beautiful Star Surround quilt, and I love the shades of purple!

I love postage stamp quilts, and Adrienne @ Chezzetcook Quilts shared her progress on this beauty!

I can't wait to see what's going on this week!
