Tic Tac Toe

I cut out most of the blocks for Tic Tac Toe last night while watching Free Willy with the kids. After that I laid out all four quadrants of Spinning Stars and made sure the colors were well distributed. I've got those carefully pinned and sitting next to the machine getting sewn together. In between the rows and columns, I've been working in these blocks and throwing them up on the design wall. They sure are bright! Ryan is at a football game with Kurt and the girls are wanting to go on an outing. I'm going to try to work a trip to Joann's into the mix so that I can pick up some of the solid colored flannel that is on sale right now. I've got two more sets of blocks ready that would like some nice cozy backing fabric.

This is a fun scrap quilt! I'd like to make it in miniature size some day to use up my tiny scraps!

Looks like you were having a really good time with those scraps.

I think the flannel will be a very nice backing.
It is a happy quilt!

I can't believe how busy you are....working and quilting! My long arming is seriously encroaching on MY sewing time.

This looks great. I saw this in Quiltmaker mag and I liked it. I'm going to do this too as a leader/ender quilt. Yours is so bright and cute...I'm not sure if I'll do 2" or 2.5", it just depends which ones I have more of or maybe I'll do both, who knows. Hugs, Linda
