Wow..that took longer than expected!
The painting the kitchen that is!! There are 6 walls in my kitchen and they took forever. I did get them done, though! I still have to paint the trim and do some touch ups. I love newly painted rooms...they seem so much cleaner! lol I was itching ALL DAY to get up here for the quiltalong, but I just couldn't swing it. Finally at 10:30 tonight, I finally made it up here. I was requested by a friend to make a quilt for a fund raiser for a humane society and I had told her I would try, but couldn't promise anything as the fundraiser is Nov 18th and I already have a LOT on plate that needs to get done. My arms are wayyyyyy too tired from the painting to wrestle with quilting my Mercy House quilt, so I was sitting here trying to think of something I could whip up for the fundraiser. Then it hit me...Bonnie Hunter's Bricks and Stepping Stones. I have looked at that pattern at LEAST a million times because I love it and I remembered that she said it was a great one if you needed a big quilt in a hurry. So, that is what I did tonight..cut out the pieces for that.
