I’ve officially decided to not put the borders on Orca Bay. I’m giving it to my long arm quilting friend and then I’m going to bind it in strip pieced pinks. I think that will finish it more to my liking.

I’m one week behind on my New York Beauty sew along. These are what I have so far. I’m making them in colors from sunflowers.

I’m in a fabric swap. I’ve missed those. I used to do a lot of them but then they seemed to disappear for a while. This one assigned us a color and then we had to get a novelty print. We’re sending out 10″ squares of each. I love these skulls and surfboards.

I have another hand applique block ready to go.

I was involved with starting up a chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild in my area. Our first meeting was this week. We were hoping for 5 people. We got 20! One person came from a neighboring state even. We got our programs for the summer figured out and it sounds like it is going to be fun.
