I decided to join in Linda and Regina's Quilt-Along. They and a group of us wannabes have decdied to make nine patch and snowball blocks. The challenge is to get about six blocks a month done. I had my strips cut and decided to start with orange and threw in the polka dot for the heck of it. Then I hunted up some fabric for the nine patches (after I had sewn!) and wound up with my leftover flower fabric. Since I was strip quilting I had no idea I had made far more than six until I had made way too many. They will get used...so there are 13 nine patches and 7 snowball blocks to start with. Not real sure I am liking the blue in there but since this is just for fun and I will do other nine patch colors maybe in the end it will be okay. For now I am not stressing on it! Was a great hour of sewing and I feel like I got something done.
I SHOULD be working on my Carolina Christmas border so maybe I will put some of those together. I have never stalled out so close to the end of a quilt before!
