I'm excited.

I'm a big fan of 'Oh Fransson' and today I follow her link to find

Scrappy Christmas Block Swap - Check out here ... http://modernjax.blogspot.com/)

I'm in for 12 blocks swap plus one for charity.This gonna be so fun for me to join this group.

In the past 2 weeks I reached the pinnacle of my boredom (as being a homemaker and wife). I even consider to move back to my home country and get a job. Beth… you probably don’t know that you pull me back to my Martin, a small town in Tennessee. I'll keep myself busy busy with the quilt blocks, cooking, gardening, and updating my blogs.

Disappearing 9 Patch

I went to Paducah Quilt show and stumbled to Eleanor Burns’ demonstration. She’s amazing and all of her quilt are gorgeous. Eleanor introduced ‘Tossed 9 Patch’ quilt block as one of her tutorials. Some quilters call this blocks ‘Disappearing 9 Patch’. I tried once with Amy Butler fabrics. It’s so difficult to keep this block accurate. Finally I squared the finished quilt top. I chopped it off 2.5 inches.

X or O

I've been away from any blogging for a while. Just don't feel to update anything but I manage to collecting and building a pile of my blocks.

What I've been up to for these past 2 weeks ...

It's 'X or O' strip blocks. Yes it can be both but I'm kind of like the X way or arranging more.
