Way back in September 2018, Erin at My Patchwork Life, gave away some of her UFO blocks. I won a set of blocks with quilty sayings that were in red/white/black (set #F on the post link above).
I've been planning to use these blocks, along with a sewing machine cut out (red and white polka dots) that I've had since 2012, to make a quilt for this challenge. I just needed to sit down and figure out how to put them all together.
Well, since I also love to find things at the thrift stores, I included some quilty panels that I found at Goodwill a couple of years ago.

I drew up a plan (graph paper is great), then started making Flying Geese, Half Square Triangles and 4 patch blocks.

I'm behind on all of this due to making face masks. I finally got started stitching everything together last week. Below is my design wall. I finished the hand applique on the toilet paper quilts on Thursday.
And the quilt progresses...

Hopefully I'll get this block stitched on Sunday. This quilt top is supposed to be finished on Monday. Not sure it will happen, we'll see.
I made more kids masks for my neighborhood.

I looked out the window of my sewing room today and saw this.

This week I got to work 3 days (I've only gotten to work 5 days the whole month of April), and had lunch with a friend (sitting in the grocery store parking lot in separate cars). Today was a drive by baby shower. Oops! the baby quilt isn't quilted yet, but I still participated. I'm behind on baby quilts (one baby born in April, and 3 due sometime in May).
