my little girl turns 3 today. (or "flee" as she says.) i wish i could bottle her up. she is such a delightful little girl. i love her so much. my dear friend Linda sent this adorable dress for her birthday. how cute is that?!?!? thank you so much, Linda.
now, for a few answers about the quilt along.
the start date was technically Monday, but if you haven't started yet, you can start today. (a few days difference is no big deal.) also, if you would rather make 7 in a week, that's perfectly fine. AND, there is no penalty for falling behind. :) a few people mentioned making a smaller version, which sounds perfect, too. just have fun with it!
a few thoughts on the color selection...and this is just my 2 cents....since there is white sashing in the quilt, you can throw almost any fabric into the mix and it should work. (white sashing does wonders!) the only thing i would recommend is to make sure that the two colors in each block have plenty of contrast. you want to be able to read each fabric easily. now i'm off to make my 9 patch for the day...have a good one!
Your daughter is precious!! Happy birthday to her...3 is a great age :o) My little one is 3 1/2 and I want to keep her that small. Can't wait to start the 9 patches...great way to use up the scraps!!
Happy birthday to your little one! Love the dress! My daughter just turned 3 a few weeks ago, and it really is such a fun stage. :-)
Happy birthday to your cutie!
I'm starting my 9-patches tonight :) I'll try and catch up.
happy birthday to your little sweetheart.
What a cutie and love her dress! I hope she has a wonderful birthday!
Happy B-day!! I just told someone today that it was her birthday! Three! WOW!!! Can't believe it!
In Spain we say "when children are small you just want to eat them, and when they grow up you regret you hadn't".........
so happy birthday to your little princess!
One question (and I HAVE looked all over your blog for the answer but didn't find it), which white fabric do you usually use for your sashing?
I'll be on the "7 once a week" list!
Thanks a lot
Happy Birthday to A! Wow! She is getting so big! And cuter every day! We should meet at the park on a sunny day!
i use bleached muslin for sashing.
3 is just wonderful, isn't it! My littlest guy is 3 1/2 and I would stick him in a bottle, too.
Happy, fun, flee birthday!
Happy birthday to your sweet little girl.My youngest grandaughter is flee,so great.Wig.
Happy flee day!
I've made 5 blocks so far. Trying to use up some smaller scraps in my stash.
Your daughter is adorable - happy birthday little one! Beautiful dress, too!
happy birthday to a!
Happy birthday to such a pretty little girl.
Happy birthday little A! Glad you like the dress. It was a lot of fun to make.
what a cutie...Happy birthday!
a friend just shared your blog with me and I want to quilt along with your 9 patch, too!
Happy Birthday sweetie!!
Another question on the quilt - do you have any 'rules' for your own quilt such as no fabric is repeated? or something along those lines?? I have never done anything like this and would like it to look GOOD when it is done. Do we JUST focus on the 9 patch blocks right now?
Happy Birthday to your sweet little girl. They grow up quick.
Happy Birthday to your little sweetheart, she will be sweet forever mine is and she just turned 23, an environmental chemist graduating on Saturday.
thanks...i'm starting tonight.
Happy Birthday to your little angel! Today is also my best friend's birthday - it's the big 4-0 for her! :)
Your daughter is so precious! My little one is now 7 -- can't believe how fast they grow! A question on the sashing -- is it against the rules to use another colour besides white? I'm sewing from stash and would rather not buy anything new unless I really need to. Thank you! Dianne B. in England
Oh how cute. And how sweet. I love the I flee! My grandbaby will be one in May. I am enjoying the quilt along. Haven't had a chance to take photo's yet.
Thanks for the quilt along.
So sweet! I love that dress on her. My son will be three in June and he's just now realized that he can tell other people.
In the grocery store this morning to a random passerby: "Hi! I'm Anderson, I'm gonna be three in June!" of course he says "thee" for 'three'... This age is so cute!
Happy birthday to your daughter! She´s beautiful and I think 3 is the perfect age, I remember when my brother was 3, he was so cute and sweet!!! He kissed and hugged everyone all the time, now he´s 16 and he´s so unsociable!! haha... But I love him =P
About the quilt, I was planning to make a bigger version, queen size for my bed, but I´ve never done a quilt that big and I´m a little hesitant...
Happy Birthday to your little one!
I'm sure glad that super scrappy is ok! That's my whole point in doing this :)
I love three too. My 3 year old is sitting on my lap right now! She will be 4 in two months and I can already tell that I am really going to miss three! : ) I am working on the 9 patches and I have two done and three more cut. I love it so far! Just one question, how many extra squares do we need of each fabric to make up the scrappy border? I have started a pile of 2 or 3 extra from each fabric to set aside to make the borders. You mentioned yardage in your original post but do you have a number of squares figured out? Thanks so much for hosting this sew-a-long! It is my first that I have actually participated in and it is so much fun!
Happy Birthday A.! I cant wait to start!
I'm loving this quilt-along! Thank you so much for suggesting it and hosting it. I have 2 1/2 inch squares everywhere.
I don't think I'll be using white sashing, but I'll definitely be using a lighter shade for contrast as you suggested. Though, I think I love lots of white in a quilt just as much as you do. But, sometimes I want something different.
Little girls are the best! Happy Birthday!
Little girls grow up to be good friends - mine did!
Your little angel is precious! I hope you enjoy every moment--the time goes so fast! The dress is very sweet! I'm excited about the quilt along, too!
What a cutie. Happy Birthday! My babies are 22 and 19. Oh, I miss them being flee. That was a great age.
I have 4 9-patches made. This is great......
ah, three! they grow too fast! i am doing a fabric give away on my blog, if you want to come on over!
Happy Birthday to sweet A!! I can't believe it's been 3 years already. She is so precious!! Have a happy celebration!! Miss ya!
happy birthday to your little girl. my baby is 5 this year!
Happy Birthday to your daughter! The dress looks so cute on her.
Happy "tree" as we used to say when we were little kids! I think I'm already behind in the one-a-day so I will try to get caught up and share my progress.
I'd like to join the quilt along!
Happy Birthday to your sweet little one!

Happy Birthday to your three yr old. She is adorable. My grandson, Aiden turned 7 on the 29th. He is a sweetie also. Count me in for the 9-Patch. I wanted to let you know that I thought your boys matching quilts were awesome.
I have a flee year old too :) Although mine missed the terrible two's and is having the terrible threes !!!
I am making a scrap quilt for my sew along, I just need a cream fabric for the sashing etc...
Count me in ~ the quilt your friend made is so inspirational. I just love the look of scrappy quilts made with white sashing.

My niece was 4 the other day and for the past year being 3 she always used to say that she was "flee"!! We are going to miss that , it was so cute! Happy Birthday to Miss "Flee".
Happy birthday! She looks so cute and happy here :)
I'm going to be doing lots of cutting this weekend in preparation for the quilt along
Happy Birthday to your daughter! It goes by fast. That dress is so cute on her.
Happy birthday, Sweet Lady A!!! Three is a good year.
Please add me to the list-I have 14 done so far. I dropped out of the second sew-a-long but hope to finish those squares someday.
I know I'll finish this one because I have no problems with squares.
Happy Late B-Day to your daughter. My daughter turned 3 on Monday.
