so i've got this box of fabric scraps in my closet, and amanda jean of crazy mom quilts is hosting a quilt-along wherein we scrap-hoarders actually use our packrat tendencies for good and create a nine-patch per day. the idea is that after a few months, we'll each have enough blocks to comprise a sashing block quilt.
i, of course, like to do things in The Most Complicated Manner Possible, so i didn't even discover the quilt-along till this past monday, putting me exactly three weeks and twenty-one blocks behind the rest of the group.
i shall be a blocking fiend.
here's the first week's worth, done in two days in a fit of blocking fiendishness. (okay, so each one only takes like six minutes, but i like to heighten the drama. quilting needs more drama.)
also, it must be said that i have never made a quilt before. i have started two quilts, but abandoned them somewhere in the piecing/sashing stages, and now they sit in loosely folded rectangles of dejection. so i'm thinking this nine-patch group will be proper accountability for me.
in the meantime, please aim all your Prosperous Quilting Vibes in my general direction. grazie, and happy wednesday.
