Quilt pattern tester

Sneaky sneaky me, I worked up a whole quilt top without speaking a word about it :)

In March I tested out a new pattern by Melissa @ Sew BitterSweet Designs

 Eyes Crossed Spied 

I worked my version up with a FQ Bundle of Scoot by Riley Blake 

I love the pattern it self, very beginner friendly, once everything is cut and labeled and laid out it sewed up super duper fast.

 I now know if I would have colored in my pattern page (as suggested in the pattern) my top would have come out with the color spreed everywhere. Instead I labeled my fabrics and skipped coloring, lesson learned.

Triangle QAL

So far so good. I am using a FQ pack along with three random solids total of 17 FQ's. It called for cutting 12 per but I got 15 per so I'm growing a lovely stack of extras maybe a mini will get pieced too. We shall see.
Are you quilting along too?

QOV block drive

Kevin the Quilter is hosting an awesome and dear to my heart Quilts of Valor block drive.
Not sure if you all know or not but my husband is Retired Army, he just (medically) retired June of 2013. In 12 years (2001-2013) he served overseas 6 times. Returning home by way of medivac the last time. He received a wonderful Quilt from American Hero Quilts that we will always cherish. No matter what organization or group I thank any and all who help get a quilt to a service member. So I have sewn up 5 blocks for the block drive. They will ship out today.
