I took the B.O.M. with me to work today and really got a lot done. I put the next (and last) two rows together, and started assembling the entire thing ... can you believe it? I am so excited! The directions do not tell you to trim the rows, but after looking at them when I started to pin them together, I knew they needed to be trimmed up. Trimming blocks that are on point you always have to remember to extend 1/4" past your point. If you trim to your point, you'll lose the point in the seam when you put it together.

Now for my traveling Thursday post ... I don't know that I have ever sent you to one of my friend's (who also happens to be a co-worker) blog. Her name is JoAnn Mullaly and she is also JAM ... she has loads of doll patterns, and stitchery patterns, but the last few years she has done a quilt called Wool Crazy, and she has published two different books. Her work is beautiful, and I am always in awe of her ideas and talent. Please check out her blog, http://woolcrazy-jam.blogspot.com/.
Thanks to you for checking my blog! Knowing that all of you are out there drives me to keep to my schedule! I so appreciate each and every one of you ... happy almost-Friday!
