Quilt Play blocks

I have been very behind in my 2019 Quilt Play pattern club blocks. Each block is paper pieced and does take a bit of time that I just didn't seem to find enough of. This past week or so I have been working on a few as I waited to find enough time to quilt my Mosaic Mystery Quilt. 
I made 2 more text blocks! 
Here are all the text blocks together so far!
I also made one picture block.
Here are the picture blocks!
I still have a few more to go but little by little I'll get them done. Slow and steady wins the race!

The start of 2020

Now that we are about 3 weeks into 2020, I thought I should give an update as to what's happening in my sewing room. The 1st week was busy with a family visit to Austin to celebrate our grandson's 1st birthday, my daughter's birthday and have our Christmas so nothing happened in my sewing room.
'I'm So Big!
Surprise visit by her sister!
Family time is so precious!
I came home to a busy work week but I managed to finish up a few things. 
I put together my flimsy to the Mosaic Mystery Quilt. My goal is to sandwich and start quilting this week!
I really like the way this quilt top came together!

I also worked with the color for January for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This year I decided to work long columns of the monthly colors with squares and HST with a gray background. 
Column 1 done. Linking to Scrap Happy Saturday.
In 2020, I will continue to make bimonthly charity blocks for the Covered In Love charity hosted by Kat & Cat Quilts. Here are my January/February blocks.
I also finished another knitted charity blanket and have done some sewing and knitting for Australia; making bat wraps, and joey pouches. 
Our knitting club is also knitting red baby hats for February's heart awareness month. These will be heading to the hospital soon. 
Sorry no pictures.
