Bit of this and a bit of that

I started thinking of how to use these blocks today.  Wendy had sent a fair bit of leftover fabrics with these blocks and I am keen to do something with it before it gets absorbed into the rest of the donated fabrics or mistakenly used for another project.
 I spent a bit of time cutting and I have a plan but this is all I am going to show you!  Lots of 4 1/2 inch squares and not so many 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch rectangles.  You will just have to wait and see!  Hee Hee.
On other news I had a wonderful email from Karen telling me she has posted me some batting.  I can't tell you how exciting it is to get an email from someone that I don't know at all offering support.  It is a real validation that what I am doing is worthwhile.  Thanks so much Karen.

I have also had some emails promising to send some nine patches for the Block of the Month!  Yay!  They should soon be here and I will be so excited to show you in a post.  AND so excited to get started on the quilt or quilts!  Exciting!

Big day of layering quilts tomorrow - no idea how many we will get done but there will be three of us working on them so you never know!  I am really looking forward to getting them quilted and bound!

Till next time.....keep spreading the word and happy stitching!


  1. great to hear Karen is kind enough to send you some wadding.

  2. Brilliant stuff. So worth while.

  3. Those plaids really are gorgeous...I can't wait to see how you finish it up.
