i couldn't help myself...

i promised myself that i wasn't going to buy any more fabric, the idea is that i was going to use up what i had in my collection...but when i think of nine patch quilts i think it in 1930's colors and prints. i'm still going to use up my stuff but i'm going to put these in there too. i'm pretty excited to add a ninepatch quilt under my belt. being a beginner i've only attempted squares and triangles and that buggy barn quilt, but i like simple quilts the best so i think this would be a great next quilt to do.

this is the general idea of what i'm going to be slowly working on this next year. i want to finish it by at least next summer...but you know me sometimes i get going and it gets done a little quicker. schools just around the corner though and that means A LOT of different challenges on top of free time from children. we'll see how much time i'm allotted to work on my quilt!

I love simple old-fashioned quilts the best, too! That one is going to be amazing. I'm betting you have it done in a month. ;)

Glad I got all caught up! My night is now complete after reading your walmart story. And don't worry...we ALL have a walmart story. Some are so bad we actually block them from memory. :)

Where, in this bless-ed, but hopelessly Mormon-handicraft stuck, state are you finding all this awesome fabric? Your quilts are fabulous, I think.
Last week I found your blog and read through all of it and kept DROOLING jealously over all your fabrics and "thrift store" finds. You must have a magic DI. :) I can't believe all the cool stuff you find.
