Instead I looked at the weekly quilting linkups. Surely you've had this experience: you click on one thumbnail photo in a blog linkup and you meet another quiltmaker. She links to her quilting blog pals and a half hour later you've made six comments and gotten three new design ideas.

Tisha has divided the quilt-along into four weeks -- choosing fabrics, cutting fabrics, piecing blocks, assembling the top. I don't want to take that long. I pulled a stack of black/white FQs and some brights.
I made a few blocks in the stated size (6" fin.) and put them on the design wall. Hmmm. What if I made a smaller size? What if I made a larger size?
I made some 3" and 9" blocks.
Here is the work-in-progress. I'm aiming for 54" x 60". I need to balance the colors and the block sizes. I'm having fun!
Thanks for your kind words, prayers, and healing thoughts for my husband. Last Tuesday he was released from the hospital to rehab where he is not happy. I hope he can be released this week to continue as an outpatient.
