I visited Wendy & her friends last night for a virtual SeW-In.
It's always FuN & I usually get a project finished each month... but this time I worked on the final applique block in the TraFFiC JaM QuiLT.  I changed the original pattern slightly by adding a "motorcycle".
Master 5 LoVeS motorcycles... especially GReeN ones... lol
The quilt will become a birthday gift at the end of JuNe.
I just need to do a little more blanket stitch today... then I'll be ready to piece it together... yippeee....
Drop over to Wendy's blog... HeRe... 
to see the other FNSI-ers projects.

The Top HaLF

of the quilt that is my current project is called... Traffic Jam... & it's now complete.
I did however change the School Bus to an Ambulance... but every traffic jam needs an ambulance in attendance I think...
The top and bottom halves are mirror imaged. Now onto the middle section... yippee...

I started a "boys" quilt at the retreat so I worked a little more on it last night.
When I finished off the "school bus" applique, I could piece 3 blocks into one larger block.
Next I did the traffic cones & added the side & top pieces.
As I was on a roll I continued with the VROOM block, then prepared & stitched the road signs blocks.
Now I just have the "lights" to go & 1/3 will be finished.
I love how this quilt top is coming together...
