One A Day - A Quilt Along

A couple of weeks ago I joined my first ever internet quilt along. I've heard about them, but never had the opportunity to join in at the beginning of one. A few weeks ago one of my favorite quilting bloggers started a new quilt along. Anyone who joins in makes one nine patch quilt block each day from scraps pr whatever you want to use. I thought, "I can do this!" And what a wonderful way to work in all my scraps and bits and pieces. I have been wanting to do a quilt that encompasses all the different leftover fabrics from the many quilts I have made. This is turning out to be a wonderful way to do that. We share our photos on a Flickr group and quilt away! (You can see my Flickr account in the sidebar) I am really enjoying it. It takes me tops 15 to 20 minutes to make a block each day - from cutting to finishing.

Here is my first week's results. I made one extra block the first week because I was going to have a really busy Sunday and didn't think I'd get one done.

I love all your squares! Makes me want to go snag all my moms old material!

What fun scrappy squares! What a cute quilt they are going to make! Okay - so now I'm clear of birthdays for a little while and I have a wonderful space to sew (thanks to you!!!)... No more excuses. I guess it's time for me to play catch up! :)
