Good News and Quilting Bee Blocks

We Have Sold Our House!!! Finally!!!! Fort Worth, TX here we come!
Our move date is May 16th and now we have to find a place in Fort Worth. That is my husbands assignment for this weekend. 
Of course we are moving during my Sew New To Me Quilting Bee month, but no worry I am currently cutting up fabric and getting it ready to mail. Here is a little sneak peek!

I decided to do a big square color wheel on the back.

I am now hand stitching the binding. I am hoping to get this finished before the big move!!

So, not much as been going on lately. My wonderful husband is coming home today to spend Easter weekend with me. YHEA! So not much sewing will be going on!

I also did a little re-design with my blog. I have been playing around with the new blogger template designer. I still don't understand how to do a lot of stuff. Any recommendations on blogger books or websites?

I have started the sashing on the Paintbox quilt. I am loving it!!! Now I need to start thinking about what to do on the back.

This is a WIP (work - in - progress) for a special project. I like were it is going! Loving the Heather Ross Mendocino line. I will also be using this line for my Sew New To Me quilting bee blocks! Can't wait till my month of  May!
Special WIP

On my design board now is a few block I made from the Hope Valley line. These block were made using a Jelly Roll and a pattern by Anne Dease called Twice as Nice. As soon as I finish the Paint Box quilt I will start working on this again.

Have a Happy Easter everyone!
