I am a bad blogger (but a productive quilter)

This week saw the start of P.S. I Quilt's Postage Stamp Quilt Along.  Well, ok, it was week two with week one being the selection of fabric.  Here's my stack of strips for it
And I'm still excited about it.  Woo hoo.

I also got some work done on my scrappy nine-patch quilt.  I even gave it a name (good thing since I'm done).  Prairie Traditions.  I'll explain that in it's own post - once I get some pictures of the finished product.  This time it isn't for lack of trying or effort, it's for lack of days without snow.  We've had snow every day since a week ago last Friday.  It's predicted to continue until Tuesday.  That'll be about a week and a half of snow.  I'm tired of snow now, thanks.

But, I digress.  Here are some progress pictures of Prairie Traditions
And the backing with my fantastic assistant, Tucker.  Isn't he adorable?

It's been washed and is in use on our bed and I love it.  Which is pretty impressive for a quilt I took so long (cough cough 9 and half years cough) to finish.  Over those years I hated it.  A lot.  Now?  I'm a fan.
