Hi, all!!

Well, Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! I hope you've had a wonderful day!! I wanted to share a picture with you, of some of the ladies who worked on the Quilts for Kids quilts and their finished products. We had a great time making these quilts and we all learned so much!

On another note, I started piecing a new quilt that I saw on Quilt Dad's blog - it's called Off The Grid 9-Patch and it's a great pattern! In his directions, it's made with two charm packs and a honey bun, but in my quest to use my stash, I figured out that I could get the same amount of pieces from a set of 15 fat quarters that I had on hand! So I don't feel one bit guilty about making it! I'll post pictures after I get it finished, but you can see the pattern on the link above - once you get to his site, just click in his post to see what he's got baking on Moda's site. (I'd have directed you to the Moda site, but Quilt Dad's stuff is so cool I want you to have a link to his stuff too!

I think I'll be breaking out my Flynn Multi Frame for this quilt when I get it pieced - I'm excited to try it and hope it's as easy as the guy in the video makes it look. It's certainly much more reasonably priced than a long arm quilter and stand - and takes up a lot less space!

Have a wonderful evening - enjoy the Olympics!!
