And now I wait........

A few days ago I mentioned that I was taking part
in the Garden Steps Stitch & Quilt Along.
The cutting and assembly instructions are now up
over at Clover & Violet's blog.
Of course I couldn't wait to get started.
I pulled reds, blues and yellows
from my stash to match my decor.
This quilt is going to be extra special to me
because a few of these fat quarters were purchased
at the Quilt Festival last year with my
fantastic blogging/sewing buddies!
So here are my 12 blocks.
All sewn and just waiting for the embroidery patterns
so that I can begin stitching!
The hardest part now is the waiting.......

I'm a such a horrible "waiter".

My husband used to hide my Christmas gifts
at his mother's house until we moved too far
away from her for that to be convenient.
Then he started buying his own wrapping paper
and bows and he would make sure the tape was
on there good so that if I tried to open them
carefully, I'd rip the paper and he'd know
and I wouldn't have the same paper to re-wrap it.

Yes....horrible I know......

So in the mean time,
I'll just admire the happy fabric
and count down the days
 until the first embroidery pattern is available.......

I think this one is my favorite block.

Or maybe this one......

I have to say I like this one too.......
