Boldly and Pinups

Hello All
I have been busy this week. I got one block done on my "Boldly" quilt. It isn't too bad. I need to bead this yet. I think I like the green flower border the best. Only 15 more to go. LOL
Then I spent the rest of the week on the Pinup quilt. All the embroidery is done by machine using 2 strands of thread. For the liitle accent squares in the sashing I used my husband's favorite color. His first car was "71 Cougar with a 351 Cleveland Engine and PosiTrac. This color that he calls Robin's Egg Blue is the exact color of that car. So I put it in in Rememberance of that former love. Now I have to wait for the fabric I won on Ebay for the border. He sure is a spoiled man. He's so lucky to have me.
That's about it. More CQing to do

Yes, your husband is a very lucky man - for many reasons. I love the boldly block. That's going to be a great piece.
