Back to Basics

I started this blog primarily to connect with other quilters and to show some of the work I've done; however I went from part time teaching to full time teaching and my boys continue to grow and stay busy so quilting got put on the back burner.  I've adjusted to the full time schedule, the boys are becoming so grown up and work has been very stressful lately that I recently have come back to my quilting.  I especially enjoy spending my weekends working on a project because quilting helps me not to think of school.  I love my kinders but definitely have a challenging this year so when I quilt that's all I can focus on for a little while.  I have a few projects that I'm working on.  The first is I'm finally finishing my Paperweight quilt that I started 4 years ago.
I'm also working on the block of the month.  I have January and February blocks done so I'm just waiting for March to get here.
And I'm also working on a Leader's and Enders bow tie quilt.  I have 100 blocks finished but need several hundred more before it will go on Spencer's bed in North Carolina.
