I have finished my last grandmothers garden block for Lyn's challenge. As I was stitching around I noticed that my sister stitcher from the past ran out of fabric for the outer ring. How frustrating it must have been for her. But she was inventive, and found a piece that would work.

Today I got to teach art in DD's class. The featured artist was Alexander Calder. I was so happy to learn his studio was messy and he loved to use scraps. I felt we were kindred spirits. The children got to make mobiles. It was a fun project. I love teaching children art.

All I needed to do to finish this was add the boarder, quilt and bind. I chose this green. I know it is a bit busy but I love it.
Also last night DD informed me that she needed a box for her Valentines this morning. Lucky me she was able to find a pink shoe box. What are the odds of that? Especially in a house full of teenage boys and only one little girl. With a little heat and bond and a few scraps I covered all the advertising on the box. The strip that is bare on the top has her name underneath. She is pleased and so am I. No trip to the store required and it doesn't look half bad.
Hope everyone has a lovely Valentines Weekend. xoxoxo

Karen and I decided to do red and yellow blocks. Hers is the one on the right. I think I went to dark with my yellow but I'm thinking that in the overall quilt we will be okay. Karen's block of course is just wonderful. My other BFF is Needled Mom. We are doing a blue and yellow quilt. Here are her beautiful blocks. She went the extra mile and sent me two.

Also in my dear friends bundle were these quarter circles. I think I'm going to have to draw from the ever inspiring Jacquie and make a circle quilt.
