An Old Quilt Along

My favorite quilt blogger is starting another quilt along.  I was soo excited when I read about it.  Then I remembered I didn't finish the last quilt along.  Crap.  I can't buy more fabric and start another one when I haven't finished the last one.  After I started it I got morning sickness and then started on baby projects and just hadn't got back to it.  So last night I dug the box of scraps out of the closet and whipped out another three blocks.  There is supposed to be 70 blocks total (that's a lot of nine-patch blocks!).  I don't have a purpose in mind for this quilt.  It's not really a little girl fabric and it will only make a twin size quilt.  But I am having a fun time putting these blocks together with my patchwork foot and knee lifter.  It really makes a difference in efficientness (is that a word?).  Sorry, didn't mean to brag about my sewing machine, I am just loving it soo much it's hard to not talk about it.  So this is my project for now.  It's nice to have a little something to work on after the kids go to bed and the house is all cleaned up.
