Making a WEE bit of progress!!

 Since the last bin I emptied had these blocks in it, and there were four of each block,
 I set the four nine patches of each fabric like this.  So?  I am now deciding on a sashing of some kind.  The yellow, I think, (I hope) makes the blocks a bit more cheery!!

Does anyone want these twenty blocks?  They are from another bin.  Just say the word, and I will have a drawing for these, too.  Lyn won the last quilt top, so it will be on it's way to her.


When I am at work, it is just crazy, and 14 hour days are the norm.  That is why you don't hear from me for awhile!!  But I am off today; so vacuumed, swept and mopped and laundry is in the works.  And a little quilting!




Hope you are having a great day!!!

Sorry that you've been working so much. Love the blocks you have pulled from the bin. Yellow looks like a good choice for sashing.

How about a green sashing for your 9Ps?

The yellow looks good with the 9 patches. I love those orange cream and white blocks! Very pretty! Please put my name in the hat for them.

Looking at the blocks, trying to remember where I saw the pattern. Would make a great comfort quilt. Dotti in CT

Looks to me like you made a lot of progress. How many hours a week do you work at your nursing job? You seem to set aside a nice amount of time for your enjoyment of sewing.

Hang in there with those long days. They can be brutal! You are a strong one!

Love following your blog and see what you're working on. And I'd love to put my name on the list for those beautiful blocks too.

I'm amazed that you get so much sewing done with your long working hours. Imagine what you will do if you ever retire! LOL I love those scrappy nine patch blocks with the yellow centers. Gorgeous!

I'd love to have these beautiful blocks. I joined a charity quilt group this spring and bigger quilts are very much in need. Hard to get a ton of sewing down around my 50+ hour/week job. Thank you for consideration.

Lots of work going on at your house! Someone will make good use of those pretty blocks. In the meantime, your four patch quilt is looking wonderful!

I can't believe how prolific you are, Julie. It's amazing and so fun to see what you're up to next. If those 20 blocks haven't found a home yet, I'd be interest in having them. The colors are beautiful.
