First I finished this

Then I made the last 5 of these. Here are all 9 18-inch blocks

Then rather than switching to black thread and digging out my brights I decided to keep going and made these last 6 12-inch blocks needed

Friday morning I went to Golden D'or and bought these

75 yards for $80.

Then I made this block for Dec. BOM at the Garland Guild

While I was at it I made this one since I'll be presenting it for the January BOM.

I also got several more of the 6 inch pink and red blocks made and did laundry, dishes, took the trash out, slept, and ate. What did YOU do this holiday weekend?

Thanksgiving Week Goals

I have 3 simple goals for this week. If I get them done by 8am Friday, I'm going to reward myself by going here for one of their 25% off everything sales. I need backings for several quilts and I might treat myself to some more black & whites for an upcoming project.

My goals are

  • finish a charity top I just started on Saturday. I have the center pieced, just need to add the borders. (they are cut) It's a really cute kids quilt.
  • Make the 18 inch blocks needed for the pink/red "Random Blocks" quilt. 4 of 9 are done.
  • Make at least 5 "Happy Scrappy" quilt blocks

I Won!

I never win anything but I have been following along in the 100 Blocks Blog Tour and I fell in love with this block by Julie Pieri. She named it "Hot Fudge Please".

Each block designer was given a copy of the book to give away and I checked out some of the designers blogs and I won a copy from Julie! WOW! So pretty soon I'll be getting this in the mail.

There were so many beautiful blocks. I visited about 20 of the blogs but I only entered about 8 of the drawings so I feel really lucky and happy to be a winner!

Thanks Beth for turning me on to this!
