I have been trying to use up all the scraps that I had cut into 2 1/2 inch squares. I had so many of them, so I decided to make this scrappy nine patch to use up as many as possible. And I did it! I used them all. It is about a twin sized quilt, great for snuggling under on the sofa during the winter. I really enjoy the hand quilting part of the process, and that is what I have been doing for the last couple of weeks. (I do have other projects to work on for a change of pace.) When this is done I'm thinking of a big log cabin quilt to be my winter project. Can't wait to shop for the fabrics:)
A couple of weeks ago we watched Tad for the day and he helped me make a chocolate cake. We had so much fun and of course he liked licking the spatula. I have pictures of my own boys doing this same thing. Wouldn't it make a great scrapbook page to show Tad and his daddy at the same age with their faces all messy?
