Quilt along!!

 Good Monday morning!!!  I woke up raring to go...piecing, here I come!!  Terry, a very wonderful and sweet blog friend, is having a quilt along.  I had this quilt cut out for, ahem, some YEARS...so it was a natural thing that I quilt along and finish this UFO!!  My pieces are a little smaller, as I am using 2 inch squares to clean out the bin.  So anything goes!!  Even a little 1/2 square triangle wiggled it's way in there.  Please see her quilt along here!!  We are just starting, so you could join right in!!  Her quilt is called Good Night Irene, and I am linking to her blog.
 Rosie is seeing what she thinks of the quilt...actually, she was on top of the quilt pieces, napping, so I had to nudge her aside to get this picture of my design floor.

Everyone needs a little Valentine...right?  This was a 15 minute quilt top...fused hearts, and the border was already sewn together in a strip.  It will be fun to hand quilt in quiet moments...whenever those come, LOL!!


Many hugs to all, and happy Monday!!

Your blocks are looking great Julie! Seeing them all laid out like that almost makes me want to make another scrappy version! Maybe someday. :0)

Your blocks look great! Love the scrappy look. I haven't sewn my rows together because I don't know how big I wanted to make my quilt yet.

A great new beginning on a sweet project from your past.

Lovely scrapiness! I was relieved to read this is a UFO for you...when I first saw the picture, I was jealous of how much you've accomplished in just the first month of the sew along! LOL
