A Bit of This and That

I've been workting on a bit of this and that, with not much to show. 

First, piecing backs for a few of my tops, so they are ready for quilting.  This is my least favorite step in making a quilt!

Next, a lot of hand quilting, finishing up my version of Pretty Dresses.  While quilitng, I've had time to think about a final name for my version.  At the moment, it is between Fashion Plate and Best Dressed List.  Any preference?

Today, I was feeling like I needed to do some piecing.  It had been a long time and I was feeling deprived, LOL!  So I pieced the test block for my next creation. 


It is from a Thimble Blossoms pattern called Spools.  The fabric is California Girl by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda.  So this counts as part of my Fig Harvest project.  I'll be back later this week with additonal blocks, plus the secret to a little change I made to the pattern.

That pattern's on my list for summer, I just can't figure out my spool top and bottom fabric. I can hardly wait to hear more about your secret!
