Blocks are Finished!

It's been a slow two weeks around here with quilting. We have all been sick with a very high temperature and just passing it from one to the next. All four of us have had it but not at the same time so it has been a little crazy. Taking care of 1 kid, then Rich, then I had it, then J got it. Now I think we are done. I also scrubbed all the walls and the house down, hoping to combat some of these germs. It has also been in the 50's the last two days so we had windows open, airing out. Today it was only 45 and rain so I didn't open up as much as I would have liked!
But finally the blocks for T's quilt are done. Now I can put the sashing in it this week and hopefully get some backing in the next month or so. I think this is going to turn out really well and I hope he likes it. I mentioned I found this guitar fabric and am building his quilt off this. Well, it is going to have the purple, orange, blue, green and pink squares in it. I have 6 guitar squares and the rest will be plain. The sashing will be the blue material. He wanted simple, and he picked out this pattern so off I went with it.

So next week after I get this sewn together I will go back to my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler and something else, but I am not sure what. I have material to make a black and white quilt and 2 jelly rolls for a pattern called Strip Poker, so I am sure it will be one of those.

Tonight J is at a hockey game playing with the band. He went to school today miserable because if you don't go to school then you don't do anything extra at night. T and Rich are playing Lego on XBox and I am going to do some blog reading and then read my current book "Middlesex". Tomorrow I will be working on T's quilt and then we have a baseball fundraiser tomorrow night, a night at the races, that I don't really want to go to but I am. Sunday I don't believe we have anything planned!

Hope everyone has a good weekend and stays dry!
