International Quilter's Day

A day all for us! So of course, what else would I have done today but quilt! lol It was a beautiful day here today, I had planned to get a walk in, but got so caught up in the sewing that I missed that chance! I've been cutting and sewing the last of the strips for my scrappy Trip Around The World Blocks.

I need 64 blocks, and as of today, I have 40 all done. So another 24 to go. I have all of the strips sewn for those 24, and hopefully tomorrow, I'll get them pressed and counter cut. Then later this week, hopefully I can say they're all done!

My mom is going to hand quilt this one, and she's waiting patiently to get it in her frames!

And now to finish the day off, a little movie time with my hubby and some hexie sewing! Happy International Quilter's Day to you all!
