Friends of a Feather....Flock together!

I talked one of my hive mates, Erica, into joining the Supernova Friendship Swap being hosted over at Late Night Quilter.

The low down:

Basically you and your partner make 10 Supernova blocks-(Tutorial can be found over at Freshly Pieced) 2 each month- 1 for yourself and 1 for your partner for 5 months. Along with this there will be some fun questions to answer and send with your block each month, this way you get to know each other a little better.

Erica and I swapped a couple fabric options (she made me choose..no pressure) we ended up with Botanique by Joel Dewberry. I asked her to choose the color way that she liked and she chose the Golden Hour and I am doing the Fountain.

Isn't this just a beautiful line! Love me some Joel Dewberry! I have my first block for Erica completed. 
I'll be sending this beauty out this week! So excited to see the rest of these blocks come together!

WIP Wednesday- Garden Peacock

I have been working on my cousin's wedding quilt, he is getting married this July! So excited for him and his fiancé. Their wedding colors are peacock themed, so I thought they needed a peacock themed quilt all their own.

 I have four of the twelve blocks completed. I'll keep chugging along and hopefully get this done in time for the big day!
So what are your working on this week?

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

Hello all!  I would like to welcome you to Stitching @ the Green Desk!

Some small tidbits about me. I'm the mother to two wonderful little boys (not so little) Riley and William. I have worked at the police department for nine years and still love it. We share our home with our dog Delilah and our ornery cat Duncan. Quilting is my selfish treat. There is nothing like the hum of the sewing machine to help d-stress.

Its been a very tedious process for me to get this started. I had a blog with a few of my first postings and lost it, ugh, then made a new blog, however decided I wanted to change some things on it along with the email it was attached to, found out I could not change the email so I had to start a whole new account. Ugh, Ugh, Ugh. I guess that is what you get when you decide to start blogging and have no idea what you are doing right?

Its been much like my quilting process. You see I'm a newbie. I'm a self taught quilter and I've had some bumps and pin sticks along the way. I've been quilting now for about a year and a half. I learned to sew when I was younger but had no use for it at the time. Then after hearing that my cousin was expecting, I decided to make her a baby quilt. It was far from perfect and I'm pretty sure the quilt police would of winced at my technique, but she liked it and I was hooked. From that point on I have searched, tried, failed, tried again. If at first you don't succeed, try again, right? So that's what I plan to do.

Any who, I plan to post lots of wondrous things for you to ooh and awe over. Oh who am I kidding. Back to reality, this blog will involve all my quilty things. Quilts, projects, swaps and more. I'm a newbie to all this so please bear with me as I stumble along on this journey. I'm always open to suggestions!

Thanks for stopping in, hope to see you back here soon!
Happy Sewing!!
