Some Progress

This is the finished top I made for Bella.  It is on the frame now waiting to be quilted.  It will be her big sister gift when the new baby comes in a few weeks.
February's AAQI mini was great fun to make.  I had great fun pulling spring solids from my very small stash of solids.  I need to get more since I have decided I like working with them.
I belong to the Business and Professional Women's Organization and we are having our scholarship fund raising gala next month.  Instead of a silent auction, we have been asked to donate a wrapped gift or two for each table that people may bid on.  I decided to make a set of six place mats.  Once again, I pulled from my small solids stash and some scraps from another recent quilt top.  I hope whoever wins the bid enjoys them.
Each one is a little unique, which makes it a fun set.
I have a couple of finished quilts I will post photos of tomorrow.  I am sorry to have been away so much, but I picked up a bug that laid me low for a while.  I am feeling better now, but Tom has been struck now. Hopefully, full health will return to our house soon.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

I figured you must be ill - it's a bug that takes a long time to recover from. Love all your pieces - really pretty pink project for Bella.

It's good to see you back, Miki. I do like Bella's pink quilt, what a thoughtful idea to make her a quilt of her own, a big sister quilt. I like your AAQI mini too, I think solids are quite difficult to work with. Your table mats are gorgeous with the controlled random pattern and whoever wins them will be very lucky.
