Kathleen Tracy

Kathleen Tracy is issuing a monthly challenge on her facebook group "Small Quilt Lover's." The January 1 challenge was to make the 8 inch square house, which was not as easy as you would think! A lot of us had trouble getting the templates to print out to the correct size. I finally drafted the block in EQ, and forgot that when you paper piece, the block turns out facing the opposite direction. The January 15 challenge was to add the half square triangles around the block. The February 1 challenge was to make 8 square in a square blocks. 

The February 15 challenge is to add a border to the house block, and make 8 more square in a square blocks. I'm off to do that next!

I've never posted a photo of myself here on my blog, and thought I needed to update my "selfie." I'm sitting at my desk at work, I made the quilt behind me a few years back. The blocks measure 4 inches square. On another note, I had my beautician dye my hair blond on Oct. 28 and haven't had it colored since then. I'm letting my natural color grow out. Guess I am mostly gray and white now! So what you see is 4 months of no new coloring. Looks like I'll have another 4 months before the blond gets all cut off. 

Think I'll go make some square in a square blocks!
Till next time, keep stitchin!
