NTT- What a Week!

Welcome to NTT, y'all!  It has been quite the week around here.  From Friday to Monday, we crammed in ALL the things; National Honors Society induction for our son Friday morning, he took the ACT Saturday morning, attended Prom Saturday night, and we all went on a day trip for a college visit on Monday.  Oh, and don't forget that I went on an overnight teaching trip on Friday/Saturday too (I made it back in town with 15 minutes to spare before he left for Prom). It was insane, and honestly I'm a little surprised that it all went off as scheduled, but WHEW!  I have been in a bit of recovery mode for the past couple of days.

With all of that going on, my teaching trip was really a nice creative break.  Sharing my quilts, teaching my improv technique, and visiting with other quilters makes me so happy, and even though I don't sew a ton during my classes (just for demonstration and guidance), just being around all of the creative energy was good for the soul.  I'm looking forward to the day when I can really get back to my machine.

Until then, I'm delighted to share some of the amazing projects linked up last week!  This quilt by Something Rosemade is a beauty!

Check out these fun blocks!  Sandra at mmm quilts is making one hot air balloon block each month using the pattern from my book, Scrappy Improv Quilting.  I love how they look together!

This pretty teal and red baby quilt was shared by Kathleen McMusing-

And finally, this fresh hourglass quilt was linked up by Quilting Gail-

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)
