Cruisin along with "Vacation Time"!

I'm now back up to date with my Pat Sloan Vacation Time
BOM blocks....this month the block is called
Hot Dog Stand!

Here's a shot of all of the blocks together
so far....January through July!
This quilt is for my sister for Christmas, she loves the
 Brown and Aqua color combo and she picked these fabrics out quite a while ago (hanging head in shame), so I know
she will be thrilled to finally get her quilt...

Of course this is not the final layout, there are still
blocks to be made so I am trying every month to
incorporate more of the colored backgrounds to sort of
"round things out" if you know what I mean, make it
more cohesive.
Shes gonna LOVE it!

Boxy Stars quilt that I started when Bonnie Hunter

 I've been sewing away on my "Scrap Vortex" quilt 
for a while now,  its fun and its mindless sewing...makes my mind drift away and I actually am relaxed while playing along with this puzzle of fabric bits and pieces, and using up so many little pieces that would have gone in the trash can!  Adding bits here and there and then cutting that chunk in 
half and adding to it again....

Here are my slabs so far....

Its so crazy busy and fun, lots of wonderful 
color and personality!

Lots of squaring up and trimming along in the 
process...but so worth it! Isn't it great?

I was working on this quilt while housesitting, this 
is Brady, a "Brittany Spaniel", hes 
a little sweetheart, he sure looks pretty on my quilt doesnt he? 

This quilt was part of a QAL with Amanda Jean
over at Crazymom quilts blog...check it out!
