Completed quilt top

This one of two identical quilt tops that I have been working on.  I used some of two June Jaeger patterns:  Gone Fishin' and From the Wild, and then did my own thing with the rest.  I am very pleased with how this looks.  I have to complete the flying geese to finish up the outside border of the second one.  We are headed to CA later this week, and when we come back, then will be the major job of sandwiching and quilting them.

This and that

I love nine patches - can you tell?  I had made what I thought were quite a few scrappy nine patch blocks and thought I would just quickly make the snowball blocks and put it together.  It turned out that I only had 15 nine patches and needed 16 more, I think it was, plus the snowball blocks.  At any rate, it wasn't as quick to get it put together as I had thought.  I did enjoy the process though, and will make more nine patches and see what I can do.  I would confess that the scraps used in this quilt didn't even make a dent in my scraps. 

I haven't blogged since the quilt retreat, and it was absolutely awesome!  I got so much done.  I should take a  picture of what I worked on most of the time.  I completed a quilt top that I had gotten as a BOM in 2006, I think it was. 

I will report that our dear daughter-in-law had a CT scan and MRI at the end of February and both came back clear.  To say that was a huge relief is a massive understatement.  She is doing well, and we are so very grateful.

And now I want to go check out some of the blogs that I have neglected getting to.
