Items I finished on Days Off

Well I am on my last day off. I am glad I didn't set to many goals to get done. I was rather busy these three days off. I took my grandson to the pool. He had a lot of fun swimming and going down the water slide. Yesterday I got a surprise visit from three nieces that I haven't seen in a long time. We had a good visit.

I did get to work on the three goals that I set for myself on these three days off.

First I started working on my scrappy nine patch blocks. I got inspired from looking around at other blogs and the nine patch sew along that was going on. I think it was started by the blog Crazy Mom Quilts. Every time I have some scraps left over from other projects I cut out any 2.5 by 2.5 squares and charm size squares that I can. I want to try to make a scrappy Irish Chain quilt out of some of the squares. I do have a lot of my Christmas squares so I will make a nine patch out of that. Here are some I work on this weekend.

I also work a little bit more on my Sunbonnet Quilt. I didn't realize that I didn't have enough white muslin for all the blocks so I will have to go to the quilt shop this next week and buy some more so I can get this quilt finished.

And last on the list I cut out some more hexagons for my grandsons I Spy quilt. I love shopping for novelty prints...they are so much fun. I think I am going to buy just a few more prints from They have such a good selections of prints.

All your blocks are delightful. I love your color selections for the 9 patches.
