Quiltathon Day 2

I got a bit of a late start this morning on the Quiltathon.  I decided to knit for a couple hours on my Circle Socks.  It was cold in the house and since it is going to be a nice day today, I wouldn't plug in the heater...I'm kind of cheap that way!  So cuddling up in the recliner with a quilt and my socks and a couple of DVR'd shows, I was a happy knitter.

I cut out the second block for my Grandmother's Choice sampler.  I'm not afraid of Y seams, I prefer to avoid them but I love this block.  Don't look too close, it's not perfect and 2 sides need to be sewn. 

I kind of got sidetracked because before I went in to sew, I put a couple loaves of Apple/Raisin/Zucchini Bread in the oven.

It started smelling so good so I had to come out and check it but it still has a little bit left to bake so I thought I'd check in.

Check in at Judy L's Patchwork Times and see how others are spending their day.  I'll report back later...to let you know how scrumptious the bread is.........and how much progress I've made.

Afternoon update:

 Can you say frustrated!  I worked so long on this block.  Being careful to cut my pieces exactly, sew carefully and it turns into a big ole mess!  It's going in the scrap bucket and will become part of Pineapple Crazy.  I'll find a different block, life is too short to make myself crazy over a quilt block!

Thank goodness these turned out good and that I did them before the Kansas Sunflower block.

Pizza dough is rising.......

Evening Update:

The bread is delicious! The pizza was delicious.  I found a paper pieced block and made it to replace the Kansas Sunflower block.  I'm calling it My Choice.  And I'm calling it a night.

Snuggling with a quilt waiting for warmth sounds like a nice start to the day. Glad you got the grandmother block done.

That bread looks so very good. I can almost smell it all the way across the country. LOL! And that's the nice thing about fall. all the lovely smells, and snuggling under quilts.
