I Should Not Blink ----

I blinked twice and time seemed to speed by.  Here is what I have done since last time. 

I have been handquilting 2 quilts in the evenings, working on these blocks,


Okay,  really I have sewn on only 3 of these blocks, the others were already gathering dust.  But I have put my rear in gear and will be churning these babies out faster.  I want to get rid of all the pieces of clothing that are taking up room in my sewing room.  Or at least use them up as fast as I can. 

Only have 19 more to go, hopefully.  I have cut all the muslin I can find right now and have another 10 or 11 foundations ready for the blocks.  I probably will run out of the backing I bought (8 or 9 yards were all they had and DH loved it) so I will have different backing on a few blocks. 

Not sure how big this is going to end up, but the blocks are 16 1/2 " square and they will be in a 6x5 layout with sashing.  I'm not even doing the math.  DH will love it and that is all I care about.
