nine patch... still working

Friday, July 17, 2009
my last update on my nine patch blocks for the one a day quilt along was on june 7th
it was day 42..
and i was at 35...
as of yesterday... july 16th...
i was still at 35...
its been a busy month!!

there are people in the group done... some have been done for a while... take a peek... amandajean our fearless leader posted finishing instructions and she has her top done...

some people made less than 70 blocks...
and made it smaller...
i stared at this photo and thought about that...


and decided even if it is not done on time... i want 70 blocks... because that is what i set out to do... and i think it needs more to be really scrappy and balance the colors...

so last night i whipped out 11 blocks... so that puts me at 46... with 24 to go!!... seems like a much more manageable amount to me...


i've got a full night of sewing planned... but don't expect to see any more nine patches... i'll be working on a new MBS tutorial for all of you!!

speaking of which... check out what vanessa & rachel are up to!!

Julie, your quilt is going to be fantastic, don't fret about how far along you are. I ended up using some of my sashing fabric for a baby quilt back and now I'm at a stand still until my hubby is home in a couple of days. Oh well...I guess I'll just have to start something else, what a pity,eh?!

Keep plugging along you will get the rest done. I know that if I set out to do something, that is the way it needs to be done. It looks great!

Thank goodness! I thought I was the only one behind. I have still have a while to go but I am determined to do the 70! We can encourage each other on. Looking forward to seeing your new tutorial. The other two are fantastic.

Yes 70! I think the numbers really make the quilt. And I can't wait to see what you've cooked up for the bake shop! (Make something cool with a turnover sometime - I need more turnover things!)
