To~Do Tuesday 23 March 2021

Hello TDT followers.  I am on time this week!  Not a lot to show for the half week but better than nothing!

I have made progress on OMIGOSH!  Not as much as I wanted to, but halfway there!  I finished 12 of the 16  9 patch blocks which  are 5” squares unfinished with 2” 9 patches.  Tomorrow I will finish the last 4 of the 9 patch blocks and then begin making the 64 each  Square in a Square blocks that are 2” unfinished that make up the 16 Shoo Fly Blocks.


I have made some progress on Indian Summer also and hope to have the rest of the right side completed by Sunday for our HQAL.  I have not decided on how I will do the borders. I am thinking on it!


Have a great week and I will see if I can finish OMIGOSH once and for all  I am ready to move on!

Hugs, Nanette

  1. Thx Laura – I am going to have this puppy finished within the week. This one may be the one I quilt for April for PHD 2012. If I finish it before my RF treatment I will try to load it so it will be quilted early in the month. I am missing March so now I will need to try to quilt 3 in April. Could happen! Hugs

    1. WordPress has gone nuts. Even when I do a reply I have to wait 8 seconds before it says “post comment”. If it continues I will contact them. Hope all is well. Thx for letting me know.

  2. OMGoodness this wordpress is driving me crazy. I tried to reply on your lost post which I just read this morning and say how much I enjoyed reading and getting to know you better. You’re living my dream life on five acres. I was so surprised to see my name – way to kind but thank you. I am going to pass as I could only answer the first two as I have no knowledge of the other questions.

    1. Hi Sharon, what a week. So far behind. I also hate the new WordPress! what a mess. It is very peaceful here. I wanted to acknowledge you and your work, it is OK if you pass. I bit into it then I realized what was going on! LOL. Have a great day! Hugs

  3. I do love the 9-patch! There’s always something about them–I know they’re simple but I think they just might be my favorite–and they’re the best when tiny. Yours are just impressive!!

    1. Thank you Cheree. I am the type that loves a challenge and especially in making my quilts. Call me Traditional! I will probably miss making the blocks, but so ready to move on!!! Hugs

  4. The double 9 patch and hand quilting both look gorgeous, Nanette! Your workmanship amazes me and inspires me to keep striving for improvement, no matter what those other quilters say about galloping by on horses from 6′ away! 😉

    1. Oh Rebecca, When we were staying in Arizona for the winter, (Sierra Vista) I joined the Guild and went to a class – when that woman said that “if you cannot see it from a galloping horse 6′ away” I knew that I was going to go for Perfection and I do not leave a mistake (unless I miss it) in one of my projects. That is what I get for doing show quilts – it made me this way! LOL. Someday – whoever ends up with my quilts will enjoy them more! Thank you for the very nice comment on my work.

  5. I can’t even sew squares together lately that the blocks come out the correct size!

  6. Hi Nanette,
    I like the double nine patches as they are – without the alternate block! You could finish it just like it is and be done with it! But I do like the OMG quilt, and I love the name, because that’s what I say whenever I see one. Hugs, Judy

  7. Oh, such tiny 9-patches; what precision! I like your Indian Summer piece; you have caught the heat of the desert well with your quilting.

    1. Thank you Marly, I am so close to the end of this craziness quilt. But a great experience. Indian Summer has been around awhile – trying to clean out the UFOs. Thank you on my quilting. Hugs.
