Quilt A Long

AmandaJean @ CrazyMomQuilts is doing a second round of her 9-patch quilt along. I decided to join in this time. After seeing all the other great quilts from last time I wanted to join in on the fun this time.

Today is day 5 so I have 5 blocks made. At the end we will have 70 blocks (1 per day for 70 days). These are some scraps of material that I've had for awhile. I think I made a bag out of them at one time. I like the teal/brown combo, so I thought I'd use them up. I'm guessing that 70 days from now will be getting close to fall so I thought these colors will be perfect for a quilt to be done at that time.

I also got a few more blocks done to add to my kaleidescope quilt. I have a ton of smaller pieces that I've kept just for a quilt like that and I love seeing it all starting to come together.

Other than that not a whole lot going on here. The girls are here for the weekend. My favorite nephew is coming down for a few days to go to a football camp at Hillsdale College (kinda a big deal!) so hopefully he'll be able to fit in some time with us. Other than that we're just being lazy, enjoying some movies and good books.

Thanks to all of you who sent birthday wishes. Just another day. Went out to eat and the ever popular McDonald's. I've got to admit that Quarter Pounder was pretty stinkin' good! They've got their teenie beanie babies back so I'm sure we'll be making several stops. Simon really wants the Ronald and Grimace. We'll see.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I always wanted to make a nine patch quilt because, as a child, I loved the Little House books and Mary and Laura were always making nine patch quilts. But I still haven't learned.
