This past weekend I went to Austin, TX for QuiltCon and had such a good time--especially meeting my fellow sisterhood quilters and so many others! I will share some pictures and experiences soon. Today I'm here to share some progress I've made on the Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts from last year. I finally finished the quilt back and will hopefully get it basted today:

|I'm sewing together large pieces of batting left over from my last two quilts (aka Frankenbatting)|
I would love to enter it in a local show, the Fiber Arts Fiesta, but the deadline to enter is March 2nd! I am really cutting it close (again, haha). If I don't get it done in time I have another quilt I'll enter instead.
Also since getting home I've been working on the mod corsage block from the Anna Maria Horner class I took at QuiltCon:

I took the class with Jess and Ashley (and Denyse Schmidt for those keeping track, though to be honest I didn't interact with her at all), who graciously let me "borrow" from the lovely fabrics they'd brought. But I felt so awful after the lunch break that I left early. Since getting home I have had renewed interest in the block and have added a few more flowers (the hexie flowers). I feel like this is a progressive project I will work on whenever I feel inspired and because it has no size goal or deadline that it can easily be set aside and picked up again as my mood dictates.
