Thank you and work in progress

This is a thank you very much and work in progress post.
Back in July, Sheila from had a blog hop and give away. Since I am a follower and liked her post so much, I entered her give away; and I won. Hurray!
But I was out of the country and my reply to Sheila was lost in cyber space. Long story short, she saved my prizes and mailed to me weeks later when we got in touch again. I love everything she sent me. I can't thank her enough for her generosity.

These are my wining prizes from Sheila ^-^

Now with the work part.
These 2 blocks are the last  two installment of the BOM sew along. (See link on the right).
We are almost done with the sew along.
I like this sew one block a month so much. I can sew at my own pace and I am often behind. But I eventually I make them.

BOM blocks for July and August

This is my "Lisboa" quilt in progress
My long term hand quilting is done. I had just added the biding by machine when I took this picture. But I still have to finish the binding by hand.
I called it "Lisboa" which is "Lisbon" in Portuguese. 
The quilt was all drafted by me. Yes, I know that there are many patterns available; but I like to draft, so I do it. My quilt is 58 inches square.
It all started when I bought a jelly roll of a fabric line by April Cornell called "Portugal." Since I am half Portuguese, I had to have it, of course. 
This past June, I was in Lisbon and I LOVED the city, hence the name of the quilt.
 Now back to binding.
Thanks again Sheila.
