wearing quilts and other goings on...

hello!  today is crazy busy, so I'm just going to show you a couple of quick pics of what I'm working on right now.  more info will follow as I {hopefully} find time to sew & make a bit of progress.  ok, here we go!

patchwork skirt in progress

I'm making a patchwork skirt, because who doesn't want to wear a quilt?  {and it's plaid!!}

1/3 of 144 cracker quilt blocks

these are 144 cracker blocks 1/3 of the way done.  I still need to cut 288 squares on the diagonal and sew 4 of the resulting triangles to each block {that's 576 triangles for all you math geeks out there :) }  I started these at the quilt retreat I went to awhile ago.

FYI, I'm super sizing this tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop.

Ok, I've got a full day of appointments, track & field, and two baseball games to get on with.  but first, I'm linking up with Sew & Tell Tuesday , Freemotion by the River, and Quilt Story.   have a great day!

edited to say:  now that it is Wednesday, I'm linking up over at WIP Wednesday, too :)

Yes, things are picking up now that it is spring. So glad you took a few minutes to share with us! The quilted skirt looks great. And so do those blocks! Love the pastel prints. Good luck with all those triangles!
