this post brought to you by the number 6


quilt top made from 6" squares-all scraps

$6 shoes by American Eagle (!!!)

6 days until my boys start school

6 is also the number of quilts that I have started in the past few weeks.
I realize I need help.

Cute shoes! Love the simplicity of the 6" squares. I'm working on one with all yellow fabrics. A Sunshine Quilt :-)

6 new quilts... WOW! I've been going crazy cause I had to halt production on just 2 to make a baby quilt.

Looking forward to seeing them!

Marty said...

Maybe we should start a support group as I too have a problem with starting quilts. Now that I think about it I think they call that a guild.
Great use of scraps.

Crystal Hendrix said...

Wow six quilts! I can only handle 1 at a time! Although I am already have my eye on another one I will be starting shortly! And one is your rag quilt!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Gee, now we can add that it has been at least 6 weeks from that post and I still don't have a patio! Maybe we should start coordinating our quilts to our shoes more often? Uh oh, more inspiration means more quilts.

kattmd said...

wow. that is a lot of 6's :)

Are those cute shoes a size 6?

Linda said...

I am relieved to find out I am actually "normal" quilter--I have arrived. I have also have six projects going at one time that I have started since the first of August!!!!!

I have pictures on my blog now that shows my 96 year old Granny sandwiching her quilt together and rolling it. I just wondered if you do this or is this an old fashioned way. I know one thing....it works. Check it out when you have a second.
