Hard to believe

...but this is what 300 2" squares look like. :)

And that's my progress so far on Judy's quilt. I still haven't exactly decided which green I want to use around the blocks. I had one green in mind, but when I was pulling it out, another green grabbed my eye. So naturally I haven't decided yet. :P

It's been a nice easy week for me - spent lots of time with my husband. Makes me feel like I'm falling in love with him all over again. :) Hey, he cooked dinner tonight, I'm gonna keep him. ;)

I found out that we're going to a wedding the weekend before Thanksgiving. At least I'll have a chance to do some shopping - I want to go to JoAnn's, Trader Joe's, Costco and a new place called Sprouts. The best part is the hotel we're staying at is just a few exits away from JoAnn's, the best I've ever seen. They actually had several rolls of Warm and Natural last year when it was on sale for $3.99/yard. Shocking! I've seen too many JoAnn's not keeping a good stock of supplies to correspond with their sales. :P

And it's my birthday next Sunday! I'm gonna be 24. We'll be celebrating at my in-law's - yummy dinner of tacos and apple cobbler. And I'm hoping for a few gift cards to JoAnn's (I think my mother-in-law was just in Tucson)... just in time for my little shopping trip! ;)

Good luck chosing the perfect green, the blocks look terrific. Hope your birthday works out...profitably and that you have dropped many hints to your mil about the gift cards.

Now that's a lot of squares! 24 was a good year, I remember it well.... it was only a year and a half ago.

Wow! Isn't it amazing how little 300 2" squares look when sewn together! Happy Birthday Leah!!!!

I was able to hit a Joann's in Nashville a few weeks ago when they had warm&Natural for $3.99. THe lady cutting it for me said she had started the day with 14 full rolls and when we were there at about 4 pm she was down to about 3 rolls!

I got my 10 yards though!

Beautiful squares, all 300 of them. I can't wait to see what your finished quilt looks like. I'm using green and purple in my Gratitude quilt too. But I'm adding red to mine.
