Lost in Chaos

Just a quick check in...
We are having a crazy time with our internet.
Supposedly we will be back up and running on August 4.  I can only hope.
My limited computer time has been spent keeping up with bill payments & such so I have lots to update you on when I get back online.

You can expect to see an update on:
the T Shirt quilt (It is in rotation at the quilter's! Yea!)
some of the Barrister's Blocks (I'm slowly catching up.)
A Give Away!!
That's right, my first give away!
I will be sending out the "Electric Slide Hot Pad" that was made for the Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!

Any way, my time is up and I must go...
Hope to be back again REAL soon!

Red White & Blue...Day 2

I know.
I've taken several days off...
...but I've been getting ready for this great 
Red White & Blue Blog Hop hosted by Jane's Fabrics and Quilts
(Please Hop on over to her blog for a complete listing of the other R/W/B bloggers.)

When I signed up to join the Hop, I had in mind to use some of my left over 1.5" Prairie Paisley (the original) half square triangles.

Here is what I came up with:
I've been wanting to do this for a while.

This one was inspired by the June 2012 over of American Patchwork & Quilting.

Then, I went to my current favorite book...
Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott
I love that the blocks in this one are organized by size and they have a wonderful variety!
"Garden Trail"
"Maple Star"
"Union Square"

It's my plan to make a table runner from these three blocks before the 4th of July rolls around...I know, I'm running out of time!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy the Hop (it's just getting started!)
And please keeping on hopping...
Here are the other bloggers that have some great things to show you today!

July 2nd
And if you stop by Jane's you can find the complete list of ALL the links for this amazing Blog Hop!
There are at least 100!  
(That should keep you busy for a while!)
