NTT- Making Up For Lost Time

Hey there, y'all!  Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday.  Since I didn't get any blocks done last week, I decided to really push and get four done this week instead of my usual two.

I've shuffled things around a little bit, so picking out the newest ones might be trickier.  The newest four are row 1/block 3, and row 4/blocks 2, 3, and 4.  Bit by bit, these blocks are coming together, and I still really love them!  I can't decide if I'm going to make 16 or 20 blocks.  It will just depend on whether I have enough fabric for a full 20 blocks.  We shall see.

The BIG reason I was able to do a little more sewing is that I finished the first draft of my book!  I have it all printed out and ready to start proofing.  I find it better to proof with "fresh eyes," so I'm planning to put it away for a little while before I start checking math and perfecting everything (which actually takes just as long as getting the draft done).  Until I start that task, I should be able to fit in a little more sewing.  

Okay, friends!  Check out some of the amazing highlights from last week.  Yvonne at Sew Yummy shared this lovely quilt top.  So much scrappy goodness in there!

This quilt by Quilting Gail has such a fun illusion!

And finally, this sweet Heather Ross quilt is by Angela at Better 'n Dog Biscuits-

What are you working on this week?  I can't wait to see.  Party on!
