Whooooo Hoooooo!!!!

I finally finished my block for my Village Sampler!! I ended up having to cut this block 3 times! It's not a hard block, I just don't like working on this quilt and I found it hard to concentrate.

This block measures 12 1/2 x 38 1/2, so it is rather large. Now I only need to do 2 more blocks and I will be ready to sew it the top together. One of the blocks is alot smaller than this one and the other is alot bigger. I am lazy so I will probably save the big one for last.

I really wanted to get this top finished this month, so hopefully I still can. We were expecting snow here today, but we only got a little bit of sleet. The boys are home from school today so we have had lots of fun. I cleaned my sewing area today and ran on to this block, I needed to recut part of it, so I finished it up to get it out of the way.

I want to start a new quilt, but I know with so many UFO's that I really shouldn't. But sometimes I think you need to start a new one. I just can't really get in the mood to work on some of my UFO's. I've been looking through some of my patterns, and can't decide on one just yet. I'm thinking of another "Stairway To Heaven" but not completely sure yet. I made one several years ago and it is one of my favorites. It is a scrap quilt, so that will make it easy, at least I won't have to buy any fabric for it.

Go Kristie! I know this was a hard block to make for you but it looks great!

I think that since you worked on one of the three blocks you should get to work on something different for the time being!!

Gorgeous - as usual with your work.

Hang in there - you will finish it...remember the little train that kept saying...I think I can, I think I can.

Start something new too!

That block came out great. I think you get to do a quilt you want to do as a reward!
