FMC/WiP - Deep Breaths

Early spring/no winter means the cottonwoods are in full bloom very early this year, and it's killing me. Literally. My trachea is about as big as a pin. If I tilt my head down or up more than 45 degrees, I can't breathe. Fun times.
I told my husband I was allergic to deployments. He didn't think I was funny. But he did hide the chainsaw when I threatened to cut down my neighbor's cottonwood tree.

Fifteen Minute Challenge - nothing really to show. I've been spending 15 minutes a day cleaning the sewing space, sorting patterns, folding fabric, etc. Since all my patterns are currently (sorted!) on the floor, it's at the "things look worse before they look better" stage. 
On the plus side, you can see the top of my Necchi sewing table! (Which the cat promptly started sitting on.)

Quilt-Alongs: 

Fat Quarter Stars - 6/12 blocks - blocks 6 and 9. I cheated on 6 - didn't want to make a Cathedral Window - so I faked it.

LQS Saturday Sampler 2012 - 6/36 - new blocks to make

LQS Saturday Sampler 2011 - Blocks 10 & 12! I really like 12 - I think it's my favorite of the bunch. Now that I'm finished with the BOMs, it's time to start putting together a quilt.

Quiltville Orca Bay {Skorca!} - I couldn't find a blue for the border until Sunday, so it's slowly getting borders. The penguin border is directional, so I had to do math and careful cutting to get them facing the right direction.

Swoon A Little, Swoon A Lot - no new blocks - I can only do so many intense piecing blocks a week!
Granny Squares - yeah, I know, another quilt-along. Shush. I need to make a quilt for my cousin's baby, and she gave me free range, and I'm so over making stars right now. I'm making granny squares with a "special" center - minkee, fur, flannel, corduroy, etc. I tried to be careful and not get near the minkee, but, um, not careful enough. Oops.
