Sweet Land of Liberty for May Done, Nutcracker Suite, Sew Lets QAL

I have a bunch of things to share today.  First, I finished my installment of the Sweet Land of Liberty, Cheri Payne's design.  We are working on it as a quilt-a-long on the Quilts by Cheri Friendship Group on Facebook.  Lori of Humble Quilts, had a quilt-a-long last year, but I came in when they were finishing up.  She is doing it again on the Quilts by Cheri Friendship Group on Facebook again this year.  Last night, I finished up stitching this month's assignment.  I did my letters and basket, hand and birds this month with wool applique.  

Also the past several days, I have been working on a BOM I am getting from Shabby Fabrics called Nutcracker Suite by Cheri Leffler Designs.    I'm keeping sort of current with this one.  The past several days I have been fusing the laser-dye cutouts to the background fabric.  All I need to do now is get them machine sewn down.  

Even though I have innumerable BOM's  that are years old, I had to get this one as I collect nutcrackers, and I loved it!

Also, I have been working on the Partners in Design Sew Lets QAL.  We get a block every two weeks.  Every two weeks, one of their designers has a block for us to do.  This block is binding clips along the edge of a quilt, designed by Jennifer Fulton of The Inquiring Quilter.  I posted this on the Partners in Design Facebook group last week, and someone pointed out my green clip was wrong.  I forced myself to get this block done last week when I was battling migraines.  Yesterday I thought, no problem, I'll just take the green one apart.  I did take the green one apart.   Then I realized the green and yellow half-clips were correct,  the other three were wrong.  The big rectangle is supposed to be holding the binding, not the other end.  

So I just decided to start all over and pay attention to what I was doing. 

I'll  be linking up to Monday Making at Love, Laugh Quilt , Moving it Forward Monday @Ems Scrapbag, and BOMS Away Monday @ What a Hoot.

Thanks for stopping by!
