I can't believe I got everything done.

I wanted to get all my swaps done before I went for surgery and I did it!

First, I had this Valentine Swap over at The Quilted Table:

It's all boxed up and ready to go.  I'll be receiving four blocks back from this swap and I'm hoping to make a cute Valentine table topper or wall hanging.

Next, I had to put the label on the block for Gena (the lady making the quilt with blocks from each of the 50 states.  I got that finished and packaged up.

Then, I received my block from Sunny, my Block Swap Adventure partner for this month.  She sent me this lovely Friendship Star variation in brown and tan.  SO CUTE!

She wanted a basket with flowers, so I designed a block and finished it today.  I think it turned out really cute.  I hope she likes it.  I'm just going to show you a preview because I want her to see it first.

Yesterday, I worked on a block for Linda who's receiving blocks this month at Let's Bee Together.  At the beginning of the month, she sent out 11 bundles of fabric to the participants and we are all able to do whatever kind of block we would like utilizing her fabric.  Again, I can only show you a preview.

I'm also caught up on my Layer Cake Quilt Along blocks, (though there's another one being released tomorrow).  Here are my first five blocks for that quilt along.

I also finished the top to Judy's Monochromatic Challenge.  It's very yellow, lol, and I used up some more yellow stash to make a backing, but I didn't take a picture of that.  It had a little piecing in it, but mostly big chunks.

Now, all I have to do is get back on my feet and get this yellow quilt basted and quilted and bound.

I'm also going to be working on Judy's UFO challenge.  We'll see how things go.

Hope you're having a quilty day!  If off to the post office.  YEAH!

I can't believe how much you've gotten done! That is completely amazing.

I admire you, how much you get done so quickly! I hope surgery isn't anything too major, and hope your feeling great and back at your sewing machine in no time at all. Keep up the good work, I always look for your blog post first to see what you have been up to while I was hard at work. :D

Crikey you have been busy.

I specially liked your yellow quilt. It's all sunshine-y.

Hope the surgery isn't major and doesn't take you out of action for too long.

The yellow quilt is very cute, I wouldnt have made an entire quilt in yellow before seeing the results of Judy's challenge, I've really like them -- bright but cute.

Hope the surgery wasn't serious and that you are feeling better.
