Scrappy squares method

I have been surfing the web the last few days following links on people's blogs. I discovered a tutorial for making blocks of small squares using iron on interfacing. It is really easy and works well too.

I made a little mug mat with bits I had hanging around.

A few other things I looked at:

Here is a simple baby bib pattern.

I love this stay put kitchen towel tutorial.

So many nice blogs to visit in the slow poke quilt group

I am doing a 50 books in 50 weeks challenge and manged to get to the library and get half a dozen books out. I don't want to get behind.  I am also doing the What's in a name no5 challenge. I got a book called Cat Sitter Amoung the Pigeons by Blaize Clement. I think 'pigeons' will qualify for something you would see in the sky. The book I have started reading is An Ominous Death by Annette Mahon. It is about the adventures of a quilting bee. One of them is an amateur sleuth and in this book one of their casual members is murdered. It seems to be a good read so far.
I liked the cover :)

I nearly forgot! Tracee at Quiltkitty Loves Life  said that the latest Homespun magazine has her quilt and my quilt in the readers show case.

Happy Quilting (and associated activities like cat patting, tea drinking and cosy mystery reading),
