Project photos

I see it has been nearly a month since I last posted.  When I went back to work, I didn't realize it would cut so much into my quilting time.  Learning a new job can be quite time consuming.  I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and hope to have more quilting time in the near future.  In the meantime, I have done a few small projects and here are the photos.
First, I made a couple of hot pads for Tom to take with him to France as gifts.
I also made him a Kindle cover for his new toy.  I made it out of one of his old shirts.  Very cool.
I added my part to the Improvirobin for this month.  This one will end up with Willa, so I hope she likes what I added.  I had to borrow fabric from her African fabric stash.  I also added some of my own fabric, including a piece from a shirt from Africa that I wore before I lost all my weight. 
I made my May AAQI quilt top.  I just have to quilt and bind it before I register it.  I will do that tomorrow.
I also finished the second top for my H2H challenge for this year.  It is much brighter than I usually work.  It is a D9P.  That dark blue square in the top center sure does stand out.  Hmmmm.
Bella has been working on her own projects while I work with fabric.  We are enjoying our Wednesdays together in the studio.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

Your fabric for the kindle cover is great. The H2H quilt is perfect for a child. They will love the bright colors.
