As I mentioned earlier, I finished the top for my granny squares quilt. I had a craaaazy Friday night, holed up in the sewing room. I turned my stack of granny squares from last week
into the quilt top you see today.
I also managed to finish up the blocks for my truant Habitat project that the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild started last fall. [Update: I followed the instructions for the Nittany block party version of Bonnie Hunter's original String-X tutorial.]
And I finished the blocks for my Martinique project that I started 2+ years ago. This project has been a bit trying. My original plan was to create one big quilt for the guest bed with alternating 9-patches and snowball blocks. The problem: I had a bad quilt math session, and the blocks ended up being about 1/2" off in size - the 9-patches were slightly larger than the snowballs.
So I trimmed the snowballs up some
added some sashing
and then this weekend, I decided that life is too short to keep futzing around with these blocks. Since I started this project a couple of years ago, I've made a quilt for the guest bed that matches fairly well.
So I'm just going to leave the blocks as they are - 2 totally different sizes.
They'll still be part of one quilt, but it won't be bed-sized. It will be a smaller reversible quilt, with the 9-patch blocks on one side and the snowballs on the other.
The decision has been made. I feel better now, don't you?

- Total number of projects: 23
