Well, I’m a little behind, but here is my first set of nine patches for the block-a-day quilt-a-long being hosted by Crazy Mom Quilts. I decided to do my blocks in my scraps of 30’s fabrics. I have thirteen sewn together, and several more cut out, waiting to be sewn. I didn’t realize I had so much yellow and purple! I hope it doesn’t overpower the quilt as I was really hoping for a mix of color. But I am determined to only use my scraps, so hopefully it will all meld together in the end. (I have also taken her advice and been cutting extra squares for the border. )
I’ve really been enjoying visiting all the blogs of the ladies participating in this project. As always, it is so fun to see everyone’s ideas and creative spirit. I encourage you to go take a look, too.
On the newbie blogging front, I’m struggling a little in finding “my voice” . I re-read the few things I’ve written, and find myself very self-conscious. I have to remind myself that settling in takes time.
