Nameless Going in Timeout

There are now 30 of the nameless blocks pieced which is a good start on the quilt. All the triangles used in this quilt were leftover from other projects. There are enough of the 8" finished blocks to set 5 by 6 which makes a 40" by 48" crib quilt. 

As I've said before, I want a larger quilt. The blocks are going to be stored until I have more triangles to finish it to approximately 60" by 80" or, more accurately, 64" by 80".

To randomly change the subject, I baked cookies last week. For a change, I substituted half of the chocolate chips with white chips. Eight dozen cookies went into the freezer, I'm well stocked now, at least for several weeks. I enjoy my cookies with coffee while grandpa and the grandsons enjoy theirs with milk.

That's a lot of little blocks! Good to take a little break sometimes too:)

next time I do cookies I need to make sure to freeze most of them - if I leave them in the jar they quickly disappear

Gretchen, that nameless quilt is PERFECT! I love the 8" blocks and getting 30 done in such short order ... has to be satisfying to use cut off triangles too instead of throwing them away!!! Yummm on the cookies... I like milk or coffee with my cookies... depends on the time of day. I love chocolate chip cookies and to add white chocolate chips sounds divine! Have a wonderful week and enjoy your hand quilting if you have had time :) Kathi

I love how your nameless quilt is shaping up! And all those cookies - yum! We enjoy cookies with both coffee and milk here at our house. Depends on the time of day!

Hi Gretchen! Being well stocked on cookies is a fabulous thing! Yum! They sure look delicious and I like the idea of using half white chocolate chips. I also think your Nameless quilt is coming along fabulous. It will be beautiful when it's complete - well, it already is beautiful. Thanks so much for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

This will be a great quilt. Funny when one can follow one's quilt life through the various fabrics.
Wish you a great day!

It really going to be a beautiful finish, hopefully it doesn't take too long to get more triangles. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.

Nameless is going to be amazing when you finish it though! It's often good to take a break from some projects!

Loving Nameless! Looking forward to when it grows some more. Lots of cookie baking, while it is cool, to help tide you over some of the summer... great idea!

Your mass production of the scrappy blocks and the cookies are both beautiful things! Congrats on both great progresses. Thanks for sharing at the Chameleon's Colour & Inspiration Party.

Love your nameless blocks although they are so pretty they deserve a better name. Love also the idea of freezing cookies! I'm guessing you bake them first, then freeze? How long do they last? Anyway, thanks for sharing your quilt on Wednesday Wait Loss.
