99 days!

Today marks 99 days until my wedding. It seems weird that in just 3 months Shawn and I will be married. I'm starting to get pretty excited about the wedding now that it is getting closer.

More quilt-a-long progress

In an attempt this weekend to show my nasty cold who was boss, I decided to make some progress on my quilt-a-long blocks. Yesterday I cut the fabric for the last two blocks. Then today I sewed one together.

Week 11 going patriotic.

I'm getting close to being finished! I've figured out how I want to set the blocks already and what I'm going to do with it. So that is pretty helpful for motivation.

Quilt-a-long Progress

In the last week I have made quite a bit of progress of what has now become a game of catch up in the quilt-a-long. This evening I gained some insight into why things don't seem to move as quickly as I would like.

Now what is wrong with this picture? Well, let's see. Just about everything! haha


As I was ripping nearly every seam in that block, I realized that I just jump into making these blocks without actually fully reading the directions. I hate to admit that this is not the only block with which I've had this problem. Maybe I'm starting to learn my lesson of following directions. Maybe.

Now that's MUCH better!

I completed four blocks this week. Pretty impressive considering I have found it quite difficult lately to find time to do sewing. Only two more blocks left! Yay!
