Week three - look at me!! I got up extra early this morning to make blocks 5 and 6. I cut the fabric last night and put them together before anyone was awake this morning.
Being off this week it sure is easy to get sucked into all kinds of new projects. Of course the list already has too many on it.
There is one more I am checking out too so I'll keep you posted.

I got my newsletter the other day from one of my favorite fabric stores Capital Quilts. On page 7 of the Summer 2010 newsletter they had a Summer Nine Patch Challenge.
Easy summer sewing, complete one nine patch block a day for at least 45 days and you will have enough for a completed project. So I took these scraps and . . .
in just a few minutes I had nine blocks completed. Now I only have to do that a few more times and I will have enough to make a quilt top. Something so fun and easy that until someone suggested it I would have never thought of it!
They are hosting a show and tell Sept. 12th so you can bring completed projects to share.

I am quilting along with Amy in her Simple Sampler Quilt-A-Long. This is two firsts for me - my first blog post and my first quilt-a-long. Yeah Me! :)
The blocks were super easy and super fun. I am making them all from my scraps. Some how I feel that if I use all my fabric down to the smallest piece it will make buying more justifiable. I love scrap quilts and I have been wanting to make a sampler quilt so this is accomplishing many things. Perfect for a multitasker like me.
