Blog-a-Paloozing (Part 3)

I am falling woefully behing on my Blog-a-Palooza blocks, and I'm afraid it is just going to get worse.  Since Thursday I have, among othe things:
  • Washed and ironed 150 yards of fabric
  • Cut strip sets for nine quilts
  • Made 336 flying geese
  • Pieced backing fabric for two quilts
Our children are delighted - all these organized piles of precuts pieces in the dining room have precluded any eating that might happen there.  Since we don't have an eat in kitchen, they are forced to eat in the famiy room in front of the TV for the time being.  I am officially a bad mother.

SinceI mistakenly deleted my last Blog-a-palooza post, I thought I'd share with you the new blocks I've made (before this project goes on a two month hiatus) and repost the ones that were lost.  So, here are the "Mocha" blocks...










And the "Chocolate" blocks...








My mom is coming to visit this weekend!  Being the consumate hostess, I have asked her to bring her rotary cutter.  Little does she know that we will be moving on from flying geese, her specialty.  Ha ha!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of sewing!

Every single one is more stunning than the last! 336 geese? Good lord, girl! That must be some kind of record!
I only have the top and bottom border to add to my (complimentary pattern) swiss chocolate quilt top. Everybody loves it! I'll post pictures when it's done!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

wow those blocks are great.
And that is a lot of fabric to wash and iron.
Hopefully with your mom cutting things will go quick.
