Wonderful WIP Wednesday

It's been a while since I've blogged.  The 400 feet (well, almost) of snow that was dumped on us last month threw me out of sorts.  Anyway, I do have a couple of things to show.
I completed this top about a month ago. It's from A Quilter's Mixology by Angela Pingel.  I really love this book.
The curves were not very difficult. I finally found something for the backing and hopefully will be able to baste it this weekend.
I went on retreat with my the Boston Modern Quilt Guild this past weekend up in Kennebunk, ME.  It was loads of fun and I actually did some sewing.
I made this churn dash top out of a fat quarter pack of Botanics.  The blocks finish at 9".  The layout is 7x8.  That means that there were 224 HST's to trim.
I didn't think to look for a backing while up in Maine.  We always make a trip to Mardens.  Hopefully, I'll have something in my stash.  The last thing I need to do is buy more fabric.
I bought these 3 fat quarter bundles before I went on retreat.  I was really naughty and bought about 30 yards (yes, 30 yards!) more at Mardens, but it was such a good deal. I hid it put it away before I had a chance to photo it:)  I promise I'll make good use of it.

Things are looking up. The temperature is supposed to be over 50 degrees tomorrow!  I even saw little buds on my raspberry bushes today.
