Back to the Projects . . .

THANK YOU  THANK YOU  THANK YOU  To all who came to visit and left sweet comments during the Dare to Dresden Blog Hop. It was lots of fun and I look forward to doing another one in the future. The next three hops are all full, so we'll see when I am fast enough to join  :)

This has been a crazy month for me! Some of you who follow, know I am a nurse who travels as part of a compliance team for a long term care company. The month of January saw me traveling to Texas, twice to Orange County, and last week to Idaho. Boy, was it COLD there! I get a little reprieve this week and get to work from home (Yay!). It is nice to be able to enjoy the warmer climate of Phoenix! After all, this is the time of year to be here. Our days are seeing temps in the low 70's - great hiking weather.

In celebration of being home, I pulled out a project I started after Christmas and worked on it a bit more.  Here are some photos:

I laid out the half square triangles of the Blitzen quilt, then marked and stacked them

Ready to begin stitching the rows together. There are 6 squares per row, 6 rows per section.

Here are some shots of them all put together


The pattern calls for only 2 borders but I will be adding 3.  The fabrics for this are from Basic Grey for MODA fabrics. They are absolutely beautiful! Now the biggest decision will be what pattern to  quilt over the top!  Any suggestions? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
Until next time . . .


  1. WOW Cathy!! Great job!!! I am impressed - with all those half square triangles!! Love it!

  2. love how organized you are in the attack of that great quilt! I see you just joined my blog, thank you for that! I tried the blog hop to see what people are doing, and it has been so gratifying to get all the comments and compliment! Hope you get your share, join one of these hops soon, you certainly have the talent!
