A few things going on here.

First I sent a little something to one of my online friends Kelly she is the wonderful person who hooked me up with lots of Neptune and we found that we are TWINS! Well we have a lot in common. So far really so much its kind of freaky. Well since she went out of her way to help us Neptune lovers I thought to add a little something to the swap I sent. She loved the one I was working on for the Modern Swap so here is one for her :)

A close up of the stitches. Sorry about the dark photo the sun was not out the day I took this. Seems like we are in the rainy season here in Houston. This is my first time hand quilting and I think I like it! I also did the circles by hand with no templates. That’s why they aren’t perfect, but I think its ok.

DSC_0021Next is the Quilt A Long that I am shockingly keeping up with. I am using a Hunky Dory Jelly Roll my mom got me, and so far I really think its going to be beautiful. I have been trying to think about how I am going to quilt it but I still have no clue! DSC_0020Last but not least….a few more Neptune prints I have found and added to my stash. I still need a few more so if you know where I can find them I have an ISO link here with the ones I still need.


I am working on my bee blocks I have gotten two of this months blocks and I have started the Put the Bee in Christmas block. I get to do a stocking and one other of my choice…not sure what that one will be yet.

Your hand quilting is beautiful! I think freehand is the way to go because it looks so organic.

I'm impressed that you are keeping up in a quilt-along... I never manage to LOL!
