Hi everybody! Just a short and sweet post today to show you the latest batch of blocks for the Patchwork Quilt Along 2017. It's called Country Roads. I usually like mix up my prints each month - some florals, some directionals, some ginghams. But when I looked at all my blocks that I've made so far, I was very short on gingham blocks. How can that have happened?! I love gingham! So I took care of that "problem" quickly.

I prepped and cut my fabric early one morning before work and then sewed them together later that day in about an hour, right before making dinner. (Dinner was risotto with Brussels sprouts in browned butter. It's yummy, and I've made it many times. Click here for the recipe from The Pioneer Woman. I double the Brussels sprouts, I substitute 1/2 cup of wine for some of the chicken stock, and I add a bit more butter. Because butter makes it better!)

I'm sure that you all remember Patchwork Quilt Along 2017 is a charitable quilt along to benefit Make-A-Wish. Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics are matching our contributions! Read all about it and find the pattern download on the Fat Quarter Shop's blog here.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
