WIP Wednesday - May 23

Even the littlest people get put to work!
 We're going crazy with spring fever around here with yard work! The garden is planted and the grass has been mowed once or twice. When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, I have a hard time staying inside to sew or do laundry or any housework! So, other than my regular Wednesday sewing date with my quilting friends, not much has happened in the sewing cave these past couple weeks. But here's some pictures of the yard WIP. (By the way, my landscaper son is for hire in the Calgary area - james(at)symessnowremoval.com)
A new walkway in the back yard.
Remember the mystery quilt I showed you a couple weeks ago? Well, here's a few of the quilt blocks done - I'm really liking the way the traditional quilt pattern looks with some modern fabrics. This triple Irish chain quilt pattern is one I've wanted to make for many years and it's going together like a dream.



What's your favourite traditional pattern? Do you have a pattern you've wanted to try for a long time?
