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. 


  1. I'm with you in liking 9 patches and snowballs. It looks great.
    So happy that the scans came back clear! Prayers are answered.

  2. GREAT news about the clear scan! Glad you had a good time at the retreat. I do love your quilt.

  3. I love your quilt, 9 patch blocks can make up so many various patterns, and are always fun to make.

    I'm so glad to hear about how well your DDIL is doing.
