October Quiltathon Day 1

Judy L is hosting the October Quiltathon beginning today.  I don't have much time today for sewing but I did get started on the Grandmother's Choice: Votes for Women sampler.  I ordered my fabrics from Connecting Threads. They have the whole line of Charlottesville on clearance so I took advantage of that.  I even bought the wide backing.

I cut the sashing and cornerstones and cut the backing to size so I can use the remainder of those fabrics, I still need to cut the outer border strips and binding strips. I read on someone's blog that she was going to set her's with the sashing in rows as she made them. So when the last block is done, she will have a quilt top almost finished.  I think that's a great idea and thinking about doing the same thing.

Block 1 is complete.  I hope to get caught up as block 6 will be posted Saturday.

The remainder of Day 1 will be spent celebrating Corbin's first birthday.  It sure doesn't seem like a year since he was born.  Time sure flies~~~~~~~~
