FMQ Project Link Up

It's been a crazy busy week, but I've got a big grin on my face after seeing the gorgeous photos we had taken of my finished Building Blocks quilt:

Getting the whole quilt together really feels great! I love seeing all the designs combined, and set off with the blue binding between each block.

The t-shirt blocks (block 8) stand out a bit more than I expected, but they also make the quilt that much more personal. The little embroidered duck was from a baby romper I once wore. The quilt also has scraps from James's plaid shorts and Josh's fraternity t-shirt. It's wonderful to see these fabrics, and they memories they bring within this quilt.

Outside of Building Blocks, we also learned a new design this week - Alien Eggs!

I decided recently that I really want to see these designs in more than just a little square or rectangle shape so I also stitched it out into a Peaceful Goddess Panel:

So that's what I've been busy with this week! What have you been working on?
