I have finished all 42 blocks of the cheddar that is pink quilt!  yeah!!!  happy dance!!!  I have worked on those blocks since last summer.  no hurry, just as leaders and enders.  I really feel like I have accomplished a lot though.  In those blocks I have 1680 2" squares.  mercy, that seems like a lot.  now to do the sashings and borders.  the blocks finish at 11".  WooWhooooooo.....
I have finished the first row!  yeah for me!!!!  I am soooo going to love this quilt.  Hubby likes it too!!  we just might keep this one.......

I also attached a sashing strip on 1 side of the rest of the 36 blocks AND finished all 8 sashing strips! 


I also finished getting ready the 2" squares ready to send.  I joined the The Curious Quilter swap.  you can choose between 1.5", 2", and 2.5" squares to swap.  each set is 100 charms.  If you want to join, you have till the 24th of March.  You can do it!!!  I know I talked earlier about wanting to do all the different sizes.  I did get 8 sets of 2.5" charms ready.  but I decided I wanted the 2" charms more.  I want to finish my cheddar that is pink quilt!  I made 10 sets.  1 for me, 1 for Vicki and 8 for the swap. 

I finished April and May  blocks for the birthday swap I am in.  everyone gets to pick their block and color way.  30s fabric has to be used.  I have to wait till December.....


And 2 more blocks for Home from the Holidays.  These blocks are super easy and quick.  Nice handwork with quick results!

Still working on blessings. Just two more passes and I will take it off the frame and bind it!   what I thought was a forever cold turned out to be allergies!  I have never had allergies!!!!  so, the Dr. gave me some wonderful help me to breathe, stop the cough and let me sleep drugs.  Life is good again!
