A Block, a Find, and a Mini

I can't believe that it has been almost a month since I last posted. What have I been up to? A little bit of sewing, I finished the block for my virtual quilt group "a Dozen Quilters." I  joined the "Modify Tradition Swap" and finished my mini top,  now just have to quilt it. I've been working on coming up with an idea for a memory quilt for my Guild, I will present it on Wednesday, wish me luck.
Work is winding down for the year and with it comes a flurry of activities. My colleague and I applied for a grant for some robotics, and just found out we were awarded it.  It's very exciting, however I'm beginning to realize that it will probably be a lot of work over the summer...hmm... Is that a good thing? 
 
I found a mini quilt at a local flea market for $7.00 it's cute but needs a good washing, and a little TLC.
   Here are some pictures of my May block and the mini quilt. I can't show you the Modify Tradition mini yet because it's a secret. But I can show you the beautiful Modify Tradition mini I got in the mail from Shelley of Elsie's Girl. It's beautiful, I love it, everything; the design, the quilting, the color ! Shelley used Riley Blake fabrics a current favorite of mine. Without further ado, here are the pictures .
The back...


Isn't it gorgeous? Thanks again Shelly!
