Today I'm thankful....
 I'm thankful for a big chunk of time yesterday to get some blocks together.
This quilt was worrying me.
I don't know why I was stressing about this gift...
but I was.

I'm also thankful for leftovers.
Maybe they'll be in the border...???.

I'm thankful they're ALL 2 1/2" wide. ;)

I'm thankful for all the friends that pass on fabric to me.
I thought about THEM as I was piecing yesterday.

I'm thankful I have enough white for sashing this quilt.
I hope I'll remember to use the SAME. exact. white
as I go along.
Have you ever used DIFFERENT whites in a quilt???
I have.
It doesn't work.

I'm thankful I won't need to BUY anything for this quilt!

I have QUITE enough fabric.

I have to keep telling myself that....
Over and over again.


  1. WOW! You are a Speedy Gonzales! It looks GREAT. I love the color combinations, and the variety. Good Job.

  2. Funny you mentioned the 'white' as this has been a conversation with other bloggers - even from buying the same 'brand' white from one store and another and white is different.

  3. I'm with you it all has to be the same .I see a lot of scrap quits and while they are lovely I just can't get past the different whites .

  4. Thankful Tuesday. Cant wait til Wednesday :-)

  5. I am LOVING this quilt---simple blocks always pull my heart strings. :)

  6. It's such a great scrap fabric quilt!!!!

  7. That's such a sweet post. The quilt is great and with all the postive thoughts you are having while you are doing it, I know it will be a blessing to someone.

  8. I'm thankful for inspiring blogging friends like you, the Internet for bringing us all together, and winning your giveaway. Thanks! No need to stress over that quilt - it is delightful!

  9. Thank YOU for reminding me to be thankful. It's always a great attitude adjustment.

  10. yep,tried that once. never again-white needs to be same

  11. thanks for that tip on the whites!!! this looks great.

  12. Yep. I have noticed this about white fabrics.
    I love this simple, sweet little block. Can't believe I haven't made a quilt using it already. It is in my near future!
