This was going to be a "quilt blocks" post

But I kept going and got all of my Punctuation blocks finished and sewn together.

This is pretty much what a whole jelly roll makes. I have about 6 blocks left over to sew into a strip for the back. Each strip of the jelly roll made 2 complete blocks with about 2.5" left over at the end. Right now this is 48" x 54", and I'm going to get some yardage from my LQS to add solid borders just to the top and bottom. These blocks were really easy to make, with only two trips to the ironing board needed. I love the bright colors and the letters. My favorites were the strips that had 4 prints on one strip (like the yellow one on the bottom row.)

And here are some quilt blocks I've finished recently:
farmer's wife blocks 3-6
Blocks 3-6 of the Farmer's Wife quilt sampler. I am having fun using purple in each block, and some new fabric arrived today that is greatly increasing my purple stash. I'll show you later.

And, some more blocks for my DQS project. I'm going to make a little row sampler, with these stars and squares, and some of the houses I made earlier. (Oh yeah, and one more row that isn't done yet.) I hope my partner likes it!

Finally, I have an idea for a fun little quilt using these:
nicey jane + solids fabric stack
It's going to be a baby quilt for my niece who's scheduled to arrive anytime now. I got the solids from Tammy at Marmalade Fabrics. Turns out she's pretty much my neighbor. It was super sweet to be able to drive just a few minutes and see her cool little fabric shop last night. Thanks for letting me stop by, Tammy!
