My Version of Square Dance

I've been wanting to make this quilt for a while 
and what better time to start it when one is blue and out of sorts.

Kids are back in their respective places, 
an anniversary has come and gone.
A time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future.

I forgot how satisfying it is to cut up fabric into little pieces
and sew them back together into a pattern.

Don't you just love 9 patches?

 Bought this fabric this summer and I love it.

So crisp and clean looking.

When I look back to when I first started quilting my seam intersections have gotten better.

I think it helps when you are careful with your 
cutting, ironing and sewing.
Every step of the process is important.
Of course it helps to chill out with some great music!!
Here are some unexpected off cuts . . . 
 mmm . . . what to do with these??
The beginnings of a quilt.

I thought I should get organized so off to IKEA I went.
I purchased this set of drawers to house desk type stuff.

I was surprised as to how heavy this was (60 lbs).  

Phew . .  3 flights of stairs I must have burnt a few calories don't ya think?

I felt like I had accomplished a great deal in putting this together  . . . 
 . . . drawers actually open and work great!

I also finished reading a book that I picked up from the library.

I enjoy reading James Patterson books.
Good old fashioned who done it without being scarey.

I think I hear the ice cream treats calling my name . . . 

I hope you enjoyed your weekend 
and trust that you have a wonderful week 
(even if it involves going to work)!!



  1. I do love nine patch blocks and yours are so pretty! I love those fabrics! :0)

  2. Yes I do love nine patches! Your quilt will be lovely

  3. Incredible! Beautiful colors as usual! Now, I'm impressed with the set up of the drawer and the putting it together!!!! I think you qualify for "experience in carpentry"!!!! Hugs,
