Jelly Roll Quilt a Long

Here is my first block in the Jelly Roll Quilt a Long by Moose on the Porch.  The Jelly Roll I used is called La’mour by Moda.  I am not 100% happy with the inside blocks.  I may redo it, haven’t decided yet.  I really wished I had put all red in the squares, or maybe put a brown in the center and all red on the outside.  Sometimes you just have to let things go though and move on.  I really love this fabric line though.

Kasey and I have been working on recycling.  I have been recycling papers for a while.  I bought one of those Aldi’s recycle bags and just throw my papers in it, then I can pick it up and take it to the big recycle dumpster.  I have been shocked at the amount of paper we generate.  One thing I really like about it is that if I need to retrieve something that I previously would have thrown away, it’s right there in the recycle.  I received a check the other day from our flexible spending account vendor and then couldn’t find it.  I looked all over and then decided to look in recycle and there it was!  I think that Kasey thought it was recycle so threw it in there. 

After the paper, I thought it would be a good idea to recycle soda cans.  We buy too much soda and I decided it was time to recycle those too.  So I searched all over town and finally found a can crusher.  This is now Kasey’s job and he really likes it.  My mom has been saving her cans up too for him to crush.  Here’s Kasey crushing the cans.
