Our Sixth

According to my calendar, yesterday was our sixth anniversary.  yes, that's right.  This blog began on January 12, 2008.  Now, some 1220+ posts later, I have to say that I like you.  I really like you.  :)

You're kind of like my quilt accountability group.  When days go by and I haven't checked in, I know I've gone too many days without quilting.  Or if not quilting, too many days of doing nothing of interest.  If I'm doing something interesting, you're sure to hear about it.  Even if I'm doing something boring, well, you know that you often hear about that too.

Over the weekend, instead of blogging and celebrating with you, I was working to finish UFO's # 1 and 2 for 2014.  (They're actually numbers 7 & 8 on my "official" list, posted here.)

Quilt #1
 Quilt #2
(Don't tell anyone, but the bottom quilt still needs one length of binding tacked down.)

Speaking of binding, did you notice the binding?  Not only were the quilts made from extra 4.5" blocks, leftover from all of those Double 4-patch baby quilts that I make, but the bindings were pieced from leftover chunks of binding as well.  Some of those scraps date back a decade or more! 

So.  Cross two off, leaving a mere 39 UFO's to go.  We're off to a great start.  Happy Blogiversary to you all!!

Happy Blogiversary to you! Congrats on finishing 2 more UFO's and I love using scrappy binding on my charity quilts too.
