UPDATE - Quiltathon

I got all my errands done and home from WallyWorld about 2pm,, geez, I just hate it when I go to the store, buy a trunk full of groceries, and no one is home to bring them in... he should be home!
By the time I got them unloaded and put away it was about 3,,, so my Quiltathon starts!! He is still gone (( see me do the happy dance! )). I got all my Double Delight blocks pressed, squared and layed out - I think I'm going to like this!

Webster, of course, has to be in the middle of it,,, " what's ya doin' Mom, huh huh huh ?" in my best doggie voice. (( grin )) Remember the border is a really pretty apple fabric,,, so my green and reds will work well.

I also got my HST papers printed out, for the Quilt Along quilt with Judy Laquidara. I used the CD-ROM from Brenda Henning where you can pick the finished size you need and print them out. I have the original one she came out with ... and have used it several times. SO EASY !! I printed a grid of 2 inch finished squares and cut my background and main fabric pieces and just sew on the lines. I will probably, maybe, have these finished tonite. Then all I will have to do is cut them apart -- sure beats sewing them one at a time!

Ok, had a break, got a new cuppa tea,,, I'm ready to go some more!
