Nominees to Select and a Sew-In!

I wasn't sure what to post about today.  I am trying to post on at least one of my blogs each day.  Well, Amy at Park City Girl fixed it for me.  She has invited everyone to nominate your favorite quilt/quilt story from the Fall 2009 Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Read her post about it here.

It has been a while since I was over there checking out the entries from the festival; I think I had left off at four hundred something and there are 683 entries!  So I have been getting caught up and re-reading to try to nominate a favorite.  Hard to do as there are so many great quilts and stories!  While I was neglecting the laundry looking at these quilts, I came across Heidi's blog and her Friday Night Sew-In and giveaway.  Love the idea.  Click on the button in my sidebar to check it out.  But, oops!  The 15th is hubby's birthday so probably no sewing for me that night!  Maybe I can get some sewing done earlier that day.

I am devoting what little sewing time I have to working on my "cocoa" quilt that I talked about here.  I have done very well this week sticking to my 15 minutes at a time experiment and am pleased with how far I've progressed.  There will be 63 ten inch blocks in all and I have 48 of them completed.  Not bad considering I only had 10 or so done when I pulled it out of the project pile last weekend.

Hubby is itching to re-paint the bedroom to match this quilt.  The blue that's in there now won't do.  He keeps asking when he can get started.  I keep telling him this won't be done for a while yet.... but who am I to keep him from a home improvement project?

Have you ever re-done a room to match one of your quilts?  I'd love to hear about it :-)

Until next time,
