My Quilt in Progress!

I decided to make a quilt to keep my hands and mind busy while Cody does homework. I like to have some sort of project to keep my mind occupied. This quilt will be about 7.25ft x 7.25ft! I plan on quilting it...with lots of help of course (hint hint).
Half way there!

This is after the second night of sewing for a few hours.
This is what I accomplished the first night of sewing...after cutting out all the blocks.

WOW girl! You are SO talented. (Do I say that every time I comment on here???) It is looking great. I have never made one, and probably won't ever. I didn't get the homemaker mom like you did. (Or at least that is what I'm blaming it on. HA!) I can't wait to see it finished!

Danica, what a smart girl you are. That takes a lot of work to make one of those quilts. I've never made one so pretty like that. You are ambitious and I am so looking forward to my Christmas gift this year from you!!!!!

Well thank you mom! After I sent you that picture last nite, I got three more rows done. I seem to be getting quicker by the night. After tomorrow, I won't have anything to do again until I find quilt stands. Christmas present?...mom its only January.
