The beauty of a blog

I was feeling like I hadn't made much progress on my Sew Many Strips quilt until I compared today's photo with last weekend's photo. Even if no one reads my blog, it is useful to me in this way.
I've got a little more than one quarter pieced.
It's slow going, but it's growing!  With all this work, this might have to be a quilt for me!

I'm off in the morning to visit some colleges in Minnesota.  My plan is to take some hexagons to sew by hand, as well as a sock that I would love to finish knitting.
I added this yellow hexi to my GFG quilt last night while binge watching Queer Eye
My 15-year-old has his learner's permit, so I let him drive today while I knitted in an attempt to remain calm.
I'm glad to have finished four quilts already this year; it makes me feel better about working on so many ongoing projects these days.

That quilt looks almost half done. Teaching our kids how to drive, scary!

We had some anxious moments when our daughter was learning to drive too. Now, she’s a great driver, confident behind the wheel.. your quilt is growing! I use my blog for the same thing...a diary of my progress and projects. Looking great!

I would definitely keep so many strips as my own quilt. Happy stitching!

I love seeing your progress on the quilt. It's coming along quite nicely! Have fun on your MN visits. Only a skip over to SD, but I'm clear across the state, almost 14 hours to the cities.

So brave with the driving!!
I'm planning on trying hexagon piecing for my next project :)

I love what you are doing with those strips, and the border looks like something I might want to try.
I still remember when my younger sister was learning to drive. I had to be the go-to ... or go with and it was so scary! She never did get her license in Ohio and I think while living in Minnesota she failed a number of times. I think she has also had a number of accidents. I sure would not dared to carry knitting needles in the side seat'

I love your scrappy quilt. It is beautiful and it is clear that a lot of work has been put in it. You should keep it for yourself.

Your quilt is going to be gorgeous!

I'm just catching up with reading blogs now. Seems I never get time to post my on my own.

I wish I'd known you were in MN. I could have taken you to some quilt shops! Maybe next time!
