Summer Sampler QAL

I have decided to join the Summer Sampler QAL over at Swim Bike Quilt, Freshly Pieced, and Fresh Lemons. All it took was a little encouragement from Marjorie at Marjorie's Busy Corner

Swim, Bike, Quilt

I decided yesterday I was going to join (It started on Monday, you can click the link to find the full schedule), then when I got home the internet was down following a thunderstorm. So I wasn't able to work on the first square last night. I picked out the fabric- didn't really want to spend money, but I found some from my stash I had been hoping to use. But I did finish it tonight.

Disclaimer- I have only quilted squares before and a very small amount of applique, so this is my first time working with triangles. I was pleasantly pleased how fast and easy this was to do. I will hopefully get today's block done tomorrow after work or Friday.

Check out the flickr pool to see all the completed blocks. They are all soo pretty.

In other news- I have been actually using my craft room- it is not all pretty and set up like I want it to be eventually, but it is functional now. See the table my sewing machine is sitting on- I got it on Craigslist for $8. My husband doesn't like it but it has wings on both sides that flap up when I need to use it for sewing/cutting and there is storage room for my sewing machine and sewing box when we are having people stay in the room. I think it is a very useful piece of furniture.

Great, now you make me want to join. I have absolutely NO time to do it, but it would be so fun. Enjoy for me. I look forward to following your progress with your quilt.
