Sorry I was MIA yesterday…I have been having phone problems ever since we got back from our vacation. Three visits from Comcast and one visit from our alarm monitoring company and we THINK that everything is solved now.  In other news, and warning – this may be TMI (too much information) for some of you – but Anne used the potty yesterday afternoon and evening SEVEN times! I am so thrilled!  I hope this is the start of a beautiful trend 🙂

I have been working on something special and I have a little sneaky peak for you!

I know the colors are slightly assaulting in the mock up – but how about imaging it in these fabrics:

Do you recognizes these fabrics (keep in mind you are seeing the reverse side of the prints)?  Check out the name of quilt if you need a hint!

Did you know from one layer cake you can get 672 squares measuring 2.5×2.5 inches? I was able to cut all those squares in 45 minutes! Fastest cutting I’ve ever done and I got to use one of the nifty tools that I won, a Sullivan’s Cutting EDGE Quilting 6.5×24.5″ ruler from Pat Sloan. So I not only got all my cutting done, but I sharpened my blade at the same time – no more dull blades for this lady 🙂

I am hoping to have more of this quilt completed this weekend – my hubby will be working a 24 hour shift on Friday which means lots of extra sewing time on Friday night.

NOTE: Don’t forget, I am one of the bloggers who is going to lose Google Friend Connect in March 2012, please take a moment and follow me via Bloglovin’, Facebook, RSS or networked blogs.  You are important to me and I want to be able to stay in contact with you!  Check my side bar for all the best ways to stay in touch after GFC goes bye bye!

    Ooh, what a fab idea having a ruler that sharpens your blades!

    Soooo jealous. I have started cutting 3″ squares for a quilt pattern — I need 525 total! (125 of five different prints) I’m about 1/4 finished and am really thinking about what I can do to not waste these squares but not finish cutting the rest. Although I’m just a 6 months quilter, I might be designing something on the fly!

    I adore your quilt design. I like the pattern play in the blocks. Brilliant!
