Here are my March quilt blocks for the Craftsy Quilt Block of the Month. These are my favorite so far. I have a little catching up to do but, I am having fun trying all of the different types of quilt squares.

We visited my family over the 4th of July last weekend and here are a couple of pictures from our trip. It was so hot while we where there, but it cooled down toward the end so we picked blueberries at the local farm. We picked about 11 lbs and brought a lot of them back to Chicago frozen so we can enjoy them for a while.
My mom and I also made this quilt while I was there. It's put together in a different way from most quilts and we learned about this new way of quilting from my mom's friend. The best part was that we had to draw lines on the quilt top and my mom's friend gave us a pen that erased when we ironed it. It's a Pilot Frixion pen that you can purchase at an office supply store. What a great discovery!
