Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times is having a quiltathon weekend, beginning today. She designed a pattern to share with any of us that wanted to join her, and I decided to play along. In an ongoing effort to use up the older fabrics in my stash, my color choices look nothing like Judy's, but I love how the quilt is looking so far. Here are my first six blocks, the middle blocks of the quilt. I didn't do all this today, I actually cut my fabrics on Tuesday and sewed some on this yesterday, becasue I won't be able to sew much this weekend. I have all the four patches done, so next I will be working on the outside blocks.

I finished my annual the-kids-are-back-in-school-I-miss-them quilt over the weekend. This quilt uses some of my older fabrics, and I copied a picture from a Lady's Circle Patchwork Quilt magazine that I had saved long ago. I really enjoy having my kids at home over the summer, and miss them when they go back to school, but I have to admit, I like the more structured days of fall too! Check over at Judy L.'s for plenty of design wall inspiration.
