more with the quilting fiendishness.

so i've finished my seventy 9-patch blocks for the crazy mom quilts one-a-day quilt-along. phew.

in theory, a one-a-day quilt is sheer genius. you sew for five minutes a day, and before long you have enough blocks for a whole quilt, lookie there. the reality, though, is far from inspired: start three weeks late, miss ten days in the middle whilst out of town, and (due largely to an absence of the gene allowing one to not meet a known deadline) end up piecing the last nineteen blocks on saturday. methinks this plan leaves something to be desired.

nevertheless. i'm done.

all 70

(i will show you more of the blocks at some point, but as we are leaving for a camping expedition during which i'd prefer to change my clothing on a daily basis, i'd best get packing.) toodles.
