Friday Sewing....

Two cranky kids really needed a nap and neither gave up too much of a fuss as I put them down around 1 today. So, after the kitchen was picked up from lunch and dishes put away and the dishwasher reloaded, it was off to the sewing room for me. On tap.... the months Quilt Square Along Block!
I picked out my fabrics from my Kansas Troubles FQ's and cut them out. This took me about 40 minutes and looked like this.
I then had time to sew it all together which took me about an hour. This is the final product. The pattern is from Lori Smith's Quilt Squares #4. If you'd like to join the fun, grab the pattern and head on over to Jo's Country Junction at the end of the month for a wonderful quilt show linky of this pattern. She'll also reveal which of the remaining 5 blocks will be selected for next month's challenge.

While you are over there, check out her post about Cinnamon rolls. It is a versatile dough and I used the recipe last night to make some mini pizza's for the kids and used the rest to make a few of the cinnamon rolls. I just did the 1 ratio and it used about 1.5 cups of flour.  They both came out great and it is a dough I will be making again soon. Thanks again Jo!


  1. It turned out great! I love this fabric warm and rich looking! Can't wait to get going on mine!

  2. Nice block! I really like the fabrics you used - very nice colours.

  3. Love your fabric choice, warm & rich !

  4. Beautiful! I had to lay out all of my pieces, too. It took a while but was the easiest way (I tried to sew the first row without the layout - what a headache!). I haven't tried Jo's cinnamon rolls yet - I'd better do that! ~Jeanne
