I started this one evening and almost finished it in the same night. It is a pattern by Fig Tree Quilts. It is going to be a raffle mini quilt for the quilt show next year.

I used The Angler 2 to chain piece all those little squares. I think I am more accurate with a drawn line.

Even though the pieces are small, it was pretty easy to make. I will quilt it when I get back.

This past week went fast.....a trip to Buffalo to buy a truck (this was Syracuse)......

flowers from my garden for.....

a little kindergartener who graduated to 1st grade.....

two grandsons for an overnight....

a wonderful moment, Griffin reading a good night story to Elliot....

a new addition to our family, my niece had a baby boy on Friday......

So I am off tomorrow morning, not sure how the blogging will go while I am away, but I will give it a try on the Ipad.
If not you can be sure I will be back as soon as I get home!

  5. Love that little cherry quilt. You make everything seem easy and doable in a day. Sleepover and grandma is so special, Maddy is lucky to be having that pretty bouquet for her.
    We have never been in the city of Syracuse, but love it whenever we passed through it while driving to Toronto. Are we going to see the picture of that truck soon? Or did I miss it?

  10. I was just thinking about your quilt show today - I have to wait until NEXT year? It was such a nice show and the little quilts are such a great idea! I love a road trip! I'm thinking of doing one for the Row By Row shops. Your grandkids are getting so big, they're so adorable!
