I was gifted 70 vintage 9 patch blocks recently. These HAVE to be from the 60's-70's. Some of the fabrics are, well, ugly! lol That makes them my favorites. I decided to make some of them into a Sister's Choice quilt. Here is the center that I got done yesterday during our snow day (we got 25 inches yesterday!!). Still have to decide on borders for it and it will go to House of Mercy. Wait until I show you what I sewed it on!! Will have to get a good pic and then will upload it!

Wow. It's been over 2 years since I've posted on here. That time sure flew by. I've missed the blog for one reason...seeing my own progress on quilts. This is how I knew how many quilts I had worked on, what stages they were in, etc. So, here I am again. I'll have to update my lists. There are a few quilts that are finished and can come off the lists, and more than a few more to add to them. I will have to see if I can remember which quilts I finished during that hiatus and post pics of them here. Sigh. It's good to be back.

The only bad thing I can say about my grandson, Jaxson, is that it seems every time he comes to visit us, he brings some kind of germs that infect half the family. I'm guessing it's just a cold that has moved into my lungs or something and I feel yuckkkkky. So, I took the day off of work and can't even enjoy it as it takes too much effort to hold my head up. Heading back to bed in a minute after dosing myself up with cold medicine. I am hoping to be able to work on some handwork later and I dug out my hexies to work on. I decided I didn't like the outer border I had on the center:
