Hey Friends!

I'm writing late Tuesday night, and, honestly, just the stuff I tackled tonight would have been enough for this post. It was one of those rare, beautiful nights where the hours seemed to multiply themselves. I basted a tshirt quilt, assembled an #OperationSmiley quilt top, and I cut out Clue 6 of Bonnie Hunter's En Provence. I listened to podcast after podcast from Frances at Off Kilter Quilt, Stephanie at Modern Sewciety, and Abby at While She Naps. It was fabulous. 

My projects have fallen into three main categories this week:

1) Orders: Tshirt quilts and the Arts Festival Quilts. A lot of quilts have been heading out the door around here! Last week I handed off 5 quilts for the Perimeter School auction: the 4 Arts Festival Quilts and one rag-style quilt made of school polos. In addition, I shipped off a tshirt quilt order (top right). The UNC quilt (bottom left) is currently basted, and I'll begin quilting it tomorrow. 

2) Quilts for Cure: We're up to 129 quilt blocks for #OperationSmiley. The first quilt top (left) is together, and I'll be attempting to quilt and bind it before QuiltCon this weekend. On the right is the fabric I've pulled for the Florida E Pluribus Unum Quilt. I hope to get started this week!

3) Personal Work: I took a little time to cut out the next En Provence Clue (64 quarter square triangles). I mostly work on personal stuff on Sundays, but having something like this ready to go means I can take just 15 or 20 minutes of my sewing time each night to do some chain piecing, and it will really add up by the end of the week. 

I know you've probably already seen this photo on my social media, but this Alison Glass/Pat Sloan combo has me feeling ALL the feels.

I'm heading to Savannah on Friday for the Modern Quilt Guild's QuiltCon East. I'm excited to meet lots of quilty folks in person! If you're there, give a holler! You can holler here in the comments, on Instagram, or Facebook. I'd love to meet you!

Love,

HollyAnne
