two blog projects

I'm having fun quilting along with other quilters in blogland. Here are my two projects. The first is a 9 patch from a quilt along with crazy mom quilts, Amandajean. Everyone is supposed to make one 9-patch every day for 70 days. Actually I can't remember right now how many days - I know it's a lot! So-o-o I'm on schedule so far. Yeah! There will be some fun pictures on flikr of all the quilts people make.



This second little project is a sort of swap. Make 6 to 12 blocks and swap with other quilters. The pressure is on now...I better do a good job on my seams, etc. especially if it's going to a quilter. I think it's a lot less stressful giving quilts to non-quilters. I have already made these and now I am worried that they aren't quite right....oh well. Hopefully someone understanding will receive them. This swap just started so there's time to join in. Maybe you can be that understanding quilter that receives mine. :)


I better get back to quilting...my husband and 2 of the kids will be home from a big backpacking trip tomorrow! Then it's back to Cooking and Cleaning. :)
