Earlier this week I finished the top of my Sea of Pearls quilt. Although I’d love to progress that further I simply don’t have the space to baste that beauty in my house so it will have to wait till I can borrow some floor space somewhere.

On top of the MSBHQAL blocks work is progressing nicely on all of my swap projects. This little bundle of fabrics arrived earlier this week,
