From Kansas

I'm a 2012 Squad Member

1/23/12  Hello from Kansas!  Just a few notes to let you know what is going on in my sewing room.  Over the weekend, I was sewing on the quilt for Quiltmakers Scrap Squad 2012.  This quilt started as a, "Yes! I can't wait to get the pattern to get started!" to "Oh my gosh, what did I start for myself here?!"  Over the weekend though, I had a couple of 'ah-ha' moments that really got this ball moving.  When I started, I didn't know what type of layout I would use and it took a long day of sewing pieces together and a late night sewing the same pieces together to realize what I was going to do... I am very excited to get it completed and am even more excited for the day I get to show you here!!

As the Quilt Block of the Month 2012 started back up again for our local quiltstore, I am excited to announce, that once again, I have proven myself a procrastinator!! I do plan on having the block done by the end of the week which it is not due until 2/4/12 but, as a New Year's resolution, I was trying not to do this.  Well, maybe next month!!

Also to keep everyone updated, baby is still growing and due in April.  We are very excited to welcome this baby boy to the world and we have began the countdown to d-day!!


  1. Jennifer, I know what you mean. When I saw the pattern I thought Oh No.... But once I got into it it went together real easy, okay somewhat easy. Mine is all quilted and all I have to do is the binding. Hopefully I will be ready to stitch it down tomorrow. Hugs

  2. I'm hoping to figure my quilt out soon... like tomorrow cause I really want to get it quilted this month... we'll see if I succeed... Congratulations on an almost finish...
