Well I revealed month 2 of the Barn Dance Mystery I made for our quilt guild! So I thought I would share it with you. These were my fabrics I chose for month 1.

And here is what gets pieced in Month 2 - The Dance Floor, Hay Bales and The Food!

Otherwise I"m home working today trying to keep my house in one piece! My son's friends decided they wanted a big graduation party of "kids" and that they should have it at our house! Feels nice to know they wanted it here (granted it was because we have the yard for it), but I"m also holding my breath that the house stays in one piece! They boys went out and bought all the food themselves and are now doing the cooking! First thing there was a water fight in our garage and the chips are a soggy mess! YUCK. But later they went outside for some tackle football - boys and girls. Times sure have changed! So far a lot of craziness and a lot of "mess" but nothing disasterous. A bunch more kids will be showing up later this afternoon after work. We will see if I"m still around tomorrow!!!! :)

Those fabrics are the most beautiful I've seen in a long while. Hope we get to see Barn Dance when it's all done!!! And loved your garage pic LOL. Enjoy these times, they're all too fleeting.

The grad sounds fun, for the kids at least. Been there, done that!
Do you have a long arm machine or did you do all that quilting on your regular machine? Either way I am impressed.

Beautiful colours for your barn dance quilt - they even match the background on your blog.
