I have been doing a quilt a long with other bloggers. It was started by Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts. The idea is that you do one nine patch a day, and in no time you have enough for a quilt top. The original is done in scrap fabrics but I had a jelly roll of Soiree By Lila Tueller , so I cut it up into 2 1/2 inch pieces ready to go. It is quite addictive though. I couldn't stop at one a day. Although, I don't have time to piece everyday so I guess it works out about even.

Lots of pretty nine patches
I have also cut out baby Layla's quilt. It will be nice to make a pink quilt for someone other than myself for a change. I really can't wait to get started on this. In fact I just might have to do some today. I know Elise can't wait to see it also.

On another subject, the electricians are at our farm today, so things are moving along nicely.
Best go do something constructive
