One day, one of the girls on there posted a question: did anyone know of any scrappy quilt alongs going on/starting? Well, I didn't, but I casually suggested that we start our own. So now we have a Nestie quilt along! To keep it simple and conducive to using up a bunch of scraps, the person in charge chose a 9-patch pattern. I don't have enough scraps saved up for a whole quilt, and I was kind of thinking of doing a black & white quilt for our living room. So I bought more fabric.

Yes, I know, the white squares are kind of cheaters. Why do all that cutting and matching of seams though, when you don't have to? So far I am LOVING how this is turning out. I want something really fun for the backing, and right now this Michael Miller print is a strong contender:
It's called "Prom" and it totally cracks me up. It is a very dreary day here in the Pacific Northwest, which means I may be able to make some progress on this one. Or I could baste my Pop Garden quilt top. It's pretty large though, and I'm scared. Plus, I don't feel like vacuuming up all of the dog hair so that I have a space to put it...
Enough of my ramblings! I leave you with some more pictures of my Nestie QAL goodness:
