Quiltathon Plans

Thursday and Friday Judy L at Patchwork Times is hosting a Quiltathon. I plan to be quiltathoning.

I got a tiny bit of a start today. I made the final Moose on the Porch block. Then I had to try Pat's (from A Little of This and a Little of Pat) spool block. She made a great video for Accuquilt showing how to cut the shapes for this block. I don't have a GO! Cutter yet so I made mine the old fashioned way. I used 2 1/2" strips from my bin and then cut half square triangles with my Easy Angle ruler. I followed Pat's easy sewing instructions. I know I'll be making more of these.

My big plan for Thursday is to work on the Bento Box blocks and the Pat Sloan BOM. Friday I plan to finish up the black and bright stars. I really think I can accomplish all this in 2 days. If I have time left, I will work on the sashing for the Moose on the Porch blocks.

Wish me luck. Will you be joining in on the fun???

Yep I'm getting a late start--I've been lost in blog land, if you can believe that. Going to go post my "big plans" and then get to it!
I'll check in on your progress later.
