Home sick :(

My throat is killing me and my head is pounding. I stayed home today to try to get well, but so far, I'm not having much success. I may need to head to the doctor in the morning to see if I have strep throat since everyone else seems to have it.


Here's a photo of my mini karate quilt that I made for my karate instructor for his birthday.


And on Sunday, when I wasn't feeling so miserable, I finished the top that I made with the the stencil looking panels - it finishes about 51" square (although it sure doesn't look square, does it - funny how fabric placement can make a piece look bigger or smaller or longer or wider than it actually is).



After working with just 3 fabrics, I had to pull out some scraps to stimulate my mind, so I worked on my Virginia Bound a bit more. I think I'll leave this up on my design wall for a while; I've been working on this quilt off and on for quite some time and I'd like to make significant progress.

OK, that's it, back to bed for me.

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well! The little quilt for the karate instructor is perfect. I'm sure he loved it. The quilt with the stencil look squares is adorable. Love the background colors you used to highlight the blocks. Your Virginia Bound is amazing - can't wait to see the entire top.
