Rambling on....and on....and on......

Got all 24 of these blocks finished today. I need to get them together before Saturday, as it's our monthly church group craft day. I can do that! Easy!


After I finished those, I put these together.



Couple of things I've been meaning to mention....
AmandaJean of Crazy Mom has decided to quit her current blog. I will miss her blog more that I can say. She's inspired me and thanks to her video tutorial, I can stipple. All the credit goes to her for that. She's also the reason I am totally addicted to bright white background fabric. I just love how the fabrics pop out from the background when it's white. So, I wanted to publicly "Thank You, Amanda Jean". I wish you much happiness and creativity in your future! You'll surely be missed.

Next up....I'm just itching to make a Shoo Fly quilt. Such a simple and traditional pattern. I just don't really know why I'm so taken with it, but I am. I've made a deal with myself (yeah, I do that) that I have to finish a couple of quilts before I can start it. I did finish several in the past few weeks, so ... any time now I may start the new one.

Now...I'm off to decide on borders on my boxes top (pic above).....hmmmmmm

Wonderful blocks and quilt! Very nice of you to give another blogger kudos for inspiration. It's always sad to see someone go when we've become close to them, even if it is through cyberland. I'd love to make a ShooFly quilt too. Let me know when you're ready to start and maybe we can do it together.

Please tell what that fabric is. I love the brown and aqua. I am hooked on white fabric also.
