Been busy.

There are 100 of these 9-patches made now. Did them in just a couple days of sewing off and on. They were cut in 2.5 inch squares and I just would sit down and keep sewing an hour or so at a time. I think I'm going to use this older looking piece for the sashing and make a 2.5 strips for it.

I think i need a corner stone. Either the peach color or the red plaid. Just to break it up some more. Looking like a grandma type quilt. 

We planted seed potatoes yesterday and did two different kinds. These are the tomatoes and peppers we started from seeds. Hopefully in the next couple weeks we can kick them out of the house so they will produce for us. I can't wait for fresh garden produce. The store bought stuff just has no flavor to me. Hopefully you had a nice weekend and you are getting outside to enjoy the better weather. Chris

I love scrappy nine-patches! In spare snatches of time, I have been trying to manage and trim down my heaping scrap boxes to produce little scrappy squares of several sizes to sew up some scrappy quilts...some day. The first job is getting the squares cut out and piled somewhere. I relly like the brown that you are going to set them with. A very proper scrap quilt in your future to be sure!

I love your choice for sashing!! Looks great! I'm glad to see you're finding some time to sew - did you have a good Easter?
