  1. Congratulations to Angie - and whoot, off to do the next block.

  2. This is the fun thing that I do on Tuesday mornings. Here's a post about my block, but where's the Mr. Linky thing?

  3. Congrats to Angie! Finished my block already- but I think we're missing the link up button. (No rush, I'm just trying to finish my block before spin class each week)

  4. Congratulations, Angie! So excited the next block is up!

  5. Yeah I've done my block! There's no link though?!

  6. This is so much fun. I made the week 3 block and have half of week 2 done. Plotted my designs on the day they were posted. I actually posted a picture of block 3 on the Flicker group, but I don't know where to go to link for the drawing. Help. Thanks for all your work. I used to love playing Tetris and this quilt-a-long is so much fun!

    1. Sorry, I missed adding it. I am on vacation and was typing the post last night super late :) It is at the end of the post now :)

  7. Very fun! My post will post tomorrow on the blog. I guess that is why my image failed! Half way done!

  8. Oh no! I haven't even started my first block .. how many weeks will the quilt along last?

  9. Finished my 3rd block. What fun. I accidently linked the wrong picture and it wont let me correct it. Oh well, cute pic of my cat atleast ;)
