Busy season

Every spring I am especially busy cause of the garden and it is a bit bigger this year so you can imagine what I have been doing. Yesterday was quilting at church. I forgot to bring the swap blocks for Nancy.  Sue passed out directions for her block. She decided on the Bear's Paw  instead of  using this pinwheel  block.

 I adjusted the measurements on this block so the pinwheel could float  and the background of the blocks could all be trimmed making the blocks all the same size and ideal for a group project. I will post a tutorial  later when I have to make the block again. This was my sample block to check measurements and it will go with the orphan blocks for church.

I was in South Bend, Indiana last week for a lecture and workshop. It went well and was lots of fun. Joan, my hostess made me very comfortable. She even let me have a peek at her studio (for the longarm business) and her sewing room. It is always a treat for me to see that. The next lecture is just an hour north of here and it is the same lecture so I am already packed.

I haven't done anymore with my convergence quilt, except move the pieces around on the wall. I still have  a few more units to make, then it'll be time to make my decision. Here are just two of the possibilities. And yes I really do already like it more than the original quilt top that I cut up.

I think I might like an off-center arrangement of some kind for this thing. Then again, I might decide to add an alternate plain block or...
