I am starting to see this quilt in my dreams.  I can’t seem to stop working on it. Do you ever have those quilts that you just feel completely obsessed about?  This is one of those for me.

I spent almost the entire day yesterday (except for the Easter egg hunting and a little break for some chocolate bunny eating), at my design wall and was able to finish up the whole right side of the quilt.

The piecing in of the negative space on these improv quilts is always the most challenging part of the process for me.

I think because it feels like a bit of a chore, I’m wanting to just keep going so I can get it done!  And so, with the exception of some hand quilting on Miss A’s bed quilt and a little story time with the girls, I spent the better part of today, at the design wall once again.

I have so many other fun projects I can’t wait to start on and/or get back to.  So I may be at the design wall yet again after the littles are in bed……. ugh…..the things we’ll do for a quilt we love.  I have to give a loving shout out to my incredibly patient and supportive husband and girls for understanding me and giving me the space I need when I get this uber focused!!!  Love you guys!

Happy April to all, I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Easter!

I’m linking this post up today to Freshly Pieced WIP Wedndesday!
