The following is an email exchange between Cherri and myself. My words are in blue, and Cherri's are in red. Cherri has made it to Alaska for the summer at this point, and I am struggling to finish all the blocks for quilt.

This link is very, very cool! It makes me want to make another sampler quilt using a 3 x 3 grid. Although, maybe in a few years. :)
We got our Internet working here......hooray! The house wintered just great and I am all ready to sew.....first up, a baby quilt for a new family that is moving here in 2 weeks with a brand new baby. I happened to buy some organic cotton ( a first for me) that features sand dollars, sea urchins, anemones, and seaweed.....all good for an Alaska baby quilt.
Is is cloud nine fabrics? Their sea collection is very nice without being too beachy. It's been cold and rainy here, so I hope Alaska is a little nicer. I'm hoping it will warm up soon.
Thought you might like to check out the above link......it reminds me of your block design quest. How goes the quilt project? How many blocks are you up to now? I will check your blog for a current picture.....
The blog is a bit behind, but I'm making good progress. I'm leaving so soon that I'm holding myself to a very tight time schedule of block making. I've made 148 so far, so I have 21 left to go. I can't believe it. I'm unexpectedly sad, I guess I thought this project would last forever. :(
I've been toying with the idea of doing something like posting a block a day on my blog with directions after I come back from camp in the fall, and making it all over again. We'll see how I feel when that time rolls around.
Anyway, new pics!
When I look at these blocks now, I quite like them. I'm a little surprised that I'm not more inspired by them. I like them all as a group, but I don't see them used in individual quilts yet.
