Spring Sampler Quilt in progress

 I have been sewing in my hotel room.  See! 

I had precut the sashing pieces and cornerstones at home, and sewed them together here in Dubai. I wish I would have brought the setting triangles with me....I could have finished the quilt top!  But, no, there they sit on my cutting table at home.  I got the pattern from the online shop hop.  I really liked the pattern, but now... not so much. It wasn't really fun to put together and I am not totally happy with my choice of sashing color. The good news?  I used everything from my stash, except for the white, dotty background.. This quilt is planned for the 10 year old granddaughter of one of my cousins. I hope she likes it.

Today I plan to work on the finishing details of my dinosaur quilt that I am making for my nephew, adding buttons, stitching 'mouths', etc. Hopefully, can show a progress photo tomorrow.
