A Quilting Week

 I'm doing all kinds of quilting this week. The blanket above is squares that friends made at a baby shower and afterwards for the new Mom to be. I have just finished crocheting them all together. She has had a boy so after I put all the ends in I'm going to add some blue to the border. It's a little lumpy here and there but I can feel all the love that went into these squares. This is honestly my favorite kind of project for All Stitched Up.

The tenth and eleventh squares of my quilt are done. Saturday we go to get the last square. Then we have until January to put them together. In January the next Saturday Sampler class starts and we are going to sign up. I'm excited to see what they have instore for the next quilt. This has been a lot of fun and I have learned a great deal.
So with all this rain it's been a quilt week. I think we have more rain to look forward to and I have more jobs to work on. I think I'm all set.

I wouldn't move one inch! We had rain this morning and I took the time to listen to it falling while knitting a few rows of my Traveling Woman. Enjoy your projects!!

we're certainly getting the weather that helps get indoor projects done. I love your quilt blocks...can't wait to see them all put together. Enjoy your weekend...hopefully the sun will come out.

It has been a perfect week for quilting. I think I need to stretch my horizons and try some different quilting techniques. Your blocks are lovely.
