Block Frenzy Continues

Blocks 21 and 22
This pinwheel block was fun to make. Quick and easy. The cow print block was supposed to me a redwork embroidery block but I am not in the mood for embroidery so I got out my farm print box and found this fun print. I think it is going to help make the baby quilt I have planned just a little more fun. Thanks Tea for picking these blocks for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks sew along.

Moose On The Porch Layer Cake Quilt Along
These are blocks 5 and 6 for Moose on the Porch Layer Cake Quilt Along. I am having a hard time with this quilt along because I am using up some older batik fabrics that I don't really care for. But they are in my stash and I am going to use them up! I got these 2 done just in time as block 7 is posted today. :0) When all the blocks were put on the design wall, I kind of liked them so I will continue until the quilt along is over.

BOM Quilt Addicts


The block on the bottom right is the block that started this block frenzy I am on. It's January's block for Yahoo group BOM-Quilt Addicts. I am using a fat quarter pack that I got for Christmas a few years ago for all these blocks. I even have the setting designed already. I should probably print it out and put it with the blocks. You know~~~~just in case I forget what I want and where I put it......there are still 7 months to go!!!

I amaze myself with how much I can get done when Ernie is watching something on tv (football) that I could care less about. So I go to my hidie hole and sew a block, come out and do something, then back into my room to make another block. Of course all the while, I am listening to an audio book that I have become so addicted to.

I like audio books. We use to take them on car drives when the kids were younger. It made for a quiet quickier trip. Once we even sat in a hotel parkinglot for about 20 minutes to finish a chapter.

Great blocks; I don't know how you keep up. I'm so behind over here that I need a quilting sweat shop! Maybe I'll leave work early today due to the weather. How about adding tomorrow as well? We'll see; if I do I'll probably just do the housework that also behind. LOL

You are doing such a great job to keep up with all these projects! I especially like your layer cake quilt along block using the dark background.
