En Provence and Hearts!

Whoot whoot, En Provence is nearly a top!  I only need to attach the borders to the mothership.  I am so pleased with this quilt.  I can't tell you how many hours went into making it but it was a LOT! I might get those borders attached today and then I can get it up off the floor and lay out Allietare!  Yes friends, this is the year to finish all those Bonnie Hunter mystery quilts.  I am not allowed to start another one unless I finish Allietare and Celtic Solstice.  Both of them are really close to being completed tops. 

I was feeling a bit tired of En Provence so I quickly made a Valentine project.  This is a throw size quilt.  Every month for this year and her friend are putting together a free pattern using 5 fat quarters and some background yardage.  The quilts are throw size and are really cute.  I used to buy fat quarters just because I liked them and they were largely without purpose.  Well, I am going to be choosing five every month and using them up into these wonderful patterns.  I can't wait to quilt my cute valentines throw.

Here is my latest HST block from Lisa Bongean's sew along.  I'm making a blue and neutral quilt.  

It has been busy in the sewing room and I feel like I am making some progress.  Hopefully you are too.  Thank you for stopping by.
