I've Been Sooooo Ill

I'm just going to throw this out there and tell you that I am so sorry for not posting .  I had pictures and I had good intentions of posting but WHAMO, I got hit by a horrible cold!  You know, fever, aches, headache, stuffy nose, runny nose, all that good stuff.  It hit me on Wednesday like a freight train.  I missed work on Wed, drugged up on Thursday and then took Friday off too so I could sleep.  I am still feeling sick but am improving.  Now to catch you up on the other things that have been happening, and there have been quite a few.

First I finished the wedding quilt for my nephew and his new bride.  They were married last December but are having a party at their new home in June.  I used Liz's GO! and cut out a tumbler quilt.  I had bought the fabric called Natural Effects quite some time ago and it was perfect for this quilt.  I had added some additional fabrics, mostly solids to it and I LOVE how it turned out.  I just need to make a back and it will be ready to go to Liz's house for quilting.

I want to make two rows of tumblers across a Kona Snow back.  I had some left over fabrics and thought about making some pillow cases to go with the quilt.  When I put this up on Flickr my friend Katy fell in love with it.  I am going to bring her all the left over tumblers and whatever fabrics I have after I make the pillow cases too.  Speaking of Katy, she made a great quilt called Scrap Vomit and asked for others to help her out with a block, so I made one of those for her too. 

I got another gift package in the mail for my going out and getting fabrics for others.  I think this was an amazing thank you gift pack, what do you think??
Last but not least I think I told you I make a quilt top for spring market, right?  Well I did.  You can see a sneak peek of the fabrics (and who the designer is) here.  I thought I was done, but I received an email last week asking if I would work on another quilt for someone quite special.  It will be on display at market too.  So sure, why not?  The fabric arrived at QQ's house on Friday afternoon.  As crappy as I felt I went over to her house and we cut everything out.  She is doing part and I am doing part.  I worked all day today and finally finished my part and brought it over to QQ''s house tonight.  She needed mine to do hers.  We are hoping to get it into the mail by Tuesday at the latest since it still needs to be quilted and bound all before market. 

I am still waiting for the last 2 blocks for the back of the quilt for Project Special Delivery then I can get that finished and off to Liz too.  I need to work on getting the top put together, but after the whirlwind of late I think I am going to just finish cleaning my house and cook and celebrate Easter with my family tomorrow.  How about you?  What have you been up to lately??

Have a blessed Easter and stop back, I just may have some more stuff to show you soon!  ~XOP~

I'm wondering how you could do so much while you were so sick. Lol, you wonder woman :). Hope you are all better now and no lingering after effects.
