CGQC Quilt Along

I made the decision to join the Quilt Along only if I did not have to purchase fabric...and I don't! The background fabric has to be at least 10 years old that I bought on sale for about $3/metre and the blues and greens (Kona Bay fabrics) for the squares were fat quarter purchases from about 5 years ago. I have always thought that I would like to put these together, so here we go! I am going to make the larger quilt as I seem to have the fabric for it. So, I am done my week one challenge and can move on to finishing or starting one of the many projects I have in mind for October.

I am so excited to have almost 2 weeks to sew, sew, sew! Housework has never been my first love, although my house is clean and neat, I don't obsess. With a dog like Chloe we deal with a LOT of hair, and every quilt I make gets given away with a little bit of Chloe attached. I feel very reflective today and thankful that a job offer came my way so quickly, but also that before that job starts I can just feel free to enjoy my time. I have a husband and kids that think I am a little crazy with the quilting, but they are supportive and that is what counts.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the fall weather!
