I just realized I didn't check in for the last Hand Quilt Along, as it was around the time I was caring for my husband before he passed. The time before that, I had been working on hexies and blocks for my Ella Maria Duncan quilt. I haven't worked on either of those since. I need to get back to those soon.
My grandson Jaeger graduated Friday night. Although I was not able to attend, as they had limited visitors, I got to watch it on You Tube. Needless to say, we are all very proud.
For the past several years, I have been working on on the Pieces From the Past Quilt by @Melva Loves Scraps. for a graduation quilt for Jaeger.
This week I worked on two blocks by hand to add to the original ones we did during the sew along, as Jaeger is 6 feet or more. So I added another row of 12 inch blocks. These were the ones I hand pieced.
And I made these two by machine.
I finished assembling the quilt and machine quilted it.
I also this week started on a lighthouse quilt which will eventually be for my brother and sister-in-law. My brother is going to lay a new kitchen floor for me in a couple of weeks, and I told them I would make them a quilt. They love lighthouses just like I do. I am trying to get a couple done before they come up in a couple of weeks.
I was feeling a bit blue this week, and daughter Katie came over after work and brought me two beautiful bouquets of flowers.
My hydrangeas are also blooming.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
I will also be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Head on over there and check out what they have been up to also.
