I finished all the center 9X blocks of my Strolling thru Paris quilt this weekend. As you can see from the sneak peek photo little miss Mya approves! Right now the center section measures 57.5" square.
Tomorrow is my Swirly Girls Club Meeting at the LQS. I will pick up the rest of the fabric I need to finish this project then.
I can hardly believe it...WHOO HOO...my 100th block!
Papa's Star is the block I chose for reaching 100. It holds very special meaning to me. My father-in-law was known as Papa rather than Grandpa. Sadly he passed away nearly 7 years ago. Our son became a father on New Years eve. When he handed his son over to my husband to hold for the very first time he said "here you go PAPA". (the torch of honor has now been passed) Here is a recent picture of our very first grandchild Alexander. He is now 3 months old. And yes...he certainly is Papa's Star!
I managed to cut out all of the pieces for my newest quilting project. It's been too long since I've completed a bed size quilt and I so love these French inspired fabrics!
Hubby & I made our first trip to Paris this past September and we fell in love with the City of Lights! We enjoyed walking thru it's beautiful streets,parks and pathways. So I've chosen to name this quilt - Strolling thru Paris. Next week I'll begin sewing the blocks together. This should prove to be a fast & fun quilt to assemble.

I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
