Sea Life

I have done some work on the Traveling Quilt, but not much this week. 
 Holy week is a super busy week normally but this week we had a mission at our church so it has been church every night this week!

I did finish a few pieces for the side of the quilt though and 
have 2 more creatures and some stars to make.

I made this invisible jelly fish.  It is kind of small and needs a bigger one to go with it.

I started on the bigger one and since taking these pics have finished it.

 My favorite part is the little starfish peeking out.  TOTALLY intentional.  I love paper piecing!

Lastly is this sea dragon I made.  I LOVE him so much!  
I made him as suggested by the pattern then added some improv water, 
turned it and cut a 12.5" square.  
I could not love him any more!

These are all from the book Paper Piecing and Design by Sarah Elizabeth Sharp.  
This book is amazing! 
I can't wait until I have time to read it cover to cover.  Currently I am just making patterns from it!

I also finished 2 backings ( and hand embroidered labels for them) 
for the twin girls that were born April 7th.  
Those quilts are now at the quilter's. 
 I cut the backing and batting for my Minky patchwork quilt but saw a bit that needs to be sewn better so I will fix it and wait for my quilter to return from vacation.  

I know I have to do the March and April blocks for my CDTC sew along too. 
 I have 1 of the 4 completed. 
I don't anticipate having any time to sew this weekend so, um yeah.  
Not sure when that is going to happen.

Have a great weekend!

Really cute blocks. I love that little peeking starfish too. I enjoyed my one foray into paper piecing and can't offer an explanation as to why I haven't done any since then.
Your productivity shames me!
