Sweet Tooth Progress

This past weekend I made some progress on my Sweet Tooth quilt by Jaybird quilts.  I have 2 of 3 blocks for Block 5 done.  My points are not perfect, but I think it turned out pretty well, and it lays flat!  The hardest part about each block, is not the sewing, but the cutting because it can take a long time for each block.  I tried to divide up the cutting time instead of doing it all at once this month, and I was able to focus better on it.

This week I am going to be working on this beautiful handmade rug!  I'm fixing it for the owner as her dog chewed not the side, but in the middle of all places.  I have to fix the braiding, darn the strips back together, and then sew it back up.  The rug is so big and bulky that it is hard to work with.  I see a good arm workout in the future.

One last photo to share with everyone.  This is the Carlsbad Flower Fields, with a beautiful backdrop of the ocean.  My Mom and I went last Friday and this was one of the pictures I took.  If you are in the area, I highly suggest it just for the pure beauty of it, and they have fun activities for kids, plus a tractor ride (I love it even as an adult)!

Have a great rest of your week!  Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts and Bee Social.
