Midweek Sewing!

 This week is Spring Break where I teach so I planned a little midweek sewing time at Barb's  I brought along my Playing with Jacks (which I quilted on my own following the backing earlier in the week) and put the binding on.  I am happy to cross this one off my UFO list!
Barb finished up her 35th Ave. BOM from last year so I can mail it off with mine to Alycia for QOV.  Kathy still has about five blocks to go!
 I then sewed on En Provence for the first time in forever.  I made it this far before Barb wanted to run out to the quilt store.
 This morning I did a bunch of teaching prep stuff then found myself with a little time before work (I leave in a few minutes!) so I sewed up the blocks and then laid them out to see what this quilt will look like!

Now hopefully I will get this one stitched up and off to my longarmer.  This mystery has taken me longer than any of them.  I just lost my mojo for it, strange since I do really like it!
Well, off to work!  Super excited that I am hiking the Grand Canyon on Sunday!

I think your En Provence is gorgeous! Hope you can get it stitched together soon.

Congrats! on your newly completed quilt. Can't WAIT to see En Provence all stitched up. It is going to be stunning!!

I've had to put other quilting in front of En Provence, so I need to get back to it. Seeing yours, I think I can make sections instead of having to do one block at a time, which was the part holding me up.
