Even with laundry, packing and generally getting ready to leave for a week, I did find time to work on my Disappearing 9 Patch blocks today. I want to make it larger than the 40 blocks will make it, so I started looking through my stash and scraps to work on some more. I found a pile of 6 inch charms that I got in a swap a few years ago at a quilt retreat. The fabrics aren't necessarily what I would choose myself, but so what, it's supposed to be scrappy anyway. I made 2 nine patches, which of course adds 8 blocks. I have enough 5" squares to make several more, so I'll complete it when I get back from....
.....The Beach! We're off tomorrow morning, and will return the following Saturday. I'm going to take my laptop, but I don't know what kind of access I'll have. Anyway, I hope to be able to log on and keep up with my daily blog reading. See you soon!
