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.
