Sometimes I wonder...

if I have a "screw loose" or something. :) If there is one thing I do not need to do - it's sign up for a sew-along. But I couldn't resist! There are a couple of interesting things going on out there in blogland and this is the first (but probably not the last) that I have succumbed to. It's a quilt called "Goodnight Irene" and I have the button for it on my sidebar if you want to visit Terry's blog and see all the gorgeous progress so far. There are a lot of people that have signed up. Check out her sidebar and you'll see where she has a linky party for the month. This month our "assignment" was to make the first 5 blocks... so I did (and before the month was over)!

I'm using batiks, and as I said a few days ago, I like how they look but I don't care for sewing with them. However, this is coming along nicely, although I think the fabric I've chosen for my X blocks may overwhelm the batiks a bit. We'll see as it progresses.

And, I have been busy doing other quilty things too. I've got three quilts that have now been pin-basted and I've just begun the quilting on the Fractured quilt. I'm showing you a pic of the mystery quilt just to give you a tiny glimpse of what I did for the border.


Take care,

I think that cross fabric is going to be awesome. I hope you have enough for a border too.
