Giraffes, Fixing the DD, Quilt History Block and Tablerunner of the Month Progress

The whole family went to the Wildlife Zoo last Sunday and the highlight was feeding the giraffes! Aren't they cute?







Here is my Country Lanes block from my quilt history class. This one went together extremely easily! Very happy with it!






Did some repair work on the Double Delight...turned that messed up block around...didn't find anymore so it is ready for borders. Last night we cut strips so I can make a cheddar border and then a nine patch border...thinking blue on the outside at this point.



At my tablerunner class I put together this butterfly April tablerunner.











I have only worked on the machine applique of one of the butterflies, but am liking it so far...a vast improvement from my last machine applique. The teacher helped me understand how to do it and I have lots to do before the next meeting!
Quilt Camp next weekend, so I am working on getting things assembled by project. So far I have my Double Delight borders all ready to go and a charm square bag for Suli (since I gave my mom the last one I made!). I have to get more stuff ready to go...decisions, decisions!
