Thanks so much for all the 9 patch love....I love it too! I got my backs all made for three projects and I am getting all three pinned today. Finger's crossed I can get them all done today and start quilting tomorrow. I'm not sure about getting both quilts totally done per my Charming Girls wish entry, but I'll try. Good thing they broke up the entry between getting the top complete and getting the top quilted and bound. Some gals send out to long arm quilters so they'd never get anything done in time without that provision.
Now on to doing my part to help stimulate the economy...one priority box at a time as some would say!
Is this not the cutest little quilt kit e-v-e-r? Those tiny little bundles are 3' x 4" goodness!! I saw this in my June 2009 McCall's Quilting and knew I would make a bit smaller version right away. So I figured I'd pop over and pick up a few of the shirtings and colors and be way under the cost for the kit...ha! Almost in no time I had exceeded the kit cost and I had nowhere near the variety...so one lovely call to the store and my kit winged it way to me! Plus since I'm making a smaller version I'll have loads for leftovers. I just love antique looking quilts!
After visiting with a few blog friends Kathie, Janet and Juliann...I've been itching to get a real applique project started soon. I haven't done one since the Birds of a Feather and the Vines and Berries quilt, so I also got busy and ordered the needed colors to make a version of this...or at least one block of that, with a few thrown in there too.
Now if I don't get UP! nothing will get started! Have a great weekend ladies and gents...(are there any men?)!!
