Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

p.s.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

Quintessential Quilting

Yes-I had to use spell check to spell quintessential correctly. Thanks for asking.

Finally getting around to posting pictures of my quilt blocks. These are the two I finished just this week around midnight the night before my class. Yea, I like to do things at the last minute. Actually, I don't-that's just how it worked out.

I don't think I ever mentioned that this is a Civl war quilt so all the blocks are named for States on either side of the Mason Dixon line. In fact, the pattern name is North and South. Clever, eh?

This block is called the Oklahoma Ladder

This block is called Baton Rouge, LA

Now, add these to the first two I finished-Indiana Puzzle

and Philadelphia Pavement

and I've done a grand total of four! I should have 8 done by now! And they technically aren't supposed to give me the new blocks until I've finished the ones from the previous month....so hopefully nobody reading this blog will squeal on me. I'll eventually catch up.

Someday

Hopefully

Maybe

Beautiful quilt blocks. I have always wanted to quilt but never had anyone patient enough to teach me. So far all i have ever done is square blocks, I guess its a start right? I am anxious to see what your quilt looks like when you are done.

Looking at the pictures in your post got me wondering if anyone has ever done a round pieces quilt, into a round quilt. Probably, but I haven't seen one. So would you have to use a round frame? JK. BTW, good job.
