9-Patches and Give Away Prize!

I joined amandajean's 9-Patch One-A-Day Quiltalong. The idea is to make a scrappy 9-Patch a day and by mid summer have enough blocks to make a good sized quilt. When I went to the Glendale Quilt Show last month I bought two $4.00 scrap bags and I'm using them for the quilt. Take a peek--I've made 15 blocks so I'm ahead--I'm having fun!

See the purse on top of the blocks? It's the giveaway prize I won on thepostitplace. It's from ohnoudidntdesigns etsy shop. The purse is sooo cute--cleverly and very nicely sewn reese's peanut butter cup wrappers that are sturdy, with a well designed layout and pockets to boot! I love it and appreciate the prize so much that I'm going to buy an uno card flap tote and a Habanero Doritos Eyeglass Case--Happy Mother's Day to me! AND, of course, Happy Mother's Day to you out there--specially Emily and Molly! (Stop by and see Molly's finished coin quilt--it's beautifully quilted and inspires me as to what mine can look like finished and Emily's crotched shoulder bag that's so cute and easy peasy!)


  1. you are so inspiring, I am so glad to be a part of the movement! I just love having an outlet for my creative side. Love the patch work!

  2. Thanks for taking the time to mention me... can't wait to see more of your Nine Patch--it looks great so far!
