I wasn't sure I really wanted to join the Little Jo's Club hosted by Angela at Quilts With A Heart.  But she made it sound really fun and there was only a sign up fee and you got a whole tower of fat quarters with it so it was really free... right?!  And you got a free project pattern every month and we all know patterns aren't cheap.... so it's really free now.... right?  And if I didn't want to or have time, I didn't have to make the projects.... right?

Well, it all sounds good and all.  But the truth is, this is kinda fun.  I don't know what I'm going to do with all these little quilts though.  And I can't believe I'm making all these little quilts with all these little pieces and 2 of the 3 have been scrappy.  Did you hear me, I said I made 2 scrappy quilts AND I didn't even plan the layout on the last one! 
This is the second quilt in the Little Jo's Club.  The original pattern suggested brown where the small blue pinwheels are and Blue where the dark red is.  You know me, I had to do red, white, and blue.  I forgot to measure it but I think it finished about 36" square, maybe less.

  This is the third Little Jo's quilt top; the unplanned scrappy one.  I used Penny Haren's pieced applique method to make the little half moon pieces.  it went together in no time at all.

You know I would love this one.  It belongs to Carol in my Little Jo's Club.  She didn't trim hers down and added the setting triangles to square it out.  I really liked it.   Wonder if Carol will trade me.  :)
And this one belongs to Sheila (I think... or maybe it was Vicki).  I love how she used the black background and added the borders to make it just a little bit bigger.

And I can't remember who this one belongs to but I think it was Sherrie's. 
Oh, and the free club that I joined, the Little Jo's Club.... Yeah, about that free thing.  It's really hard not to spend any money when you go to the club meetings  and Angela has all these new and exciting quilting toys, books, and fabrics.  AND she's having a sale this Saturday; buy one, get one FREE, on everything in her shop.  There's that free word again.  If it's free why am I paying money?  I was pretty good though.  I only bought 1  book and got one FREE and I bought 1 1/2 yards of fabric and got 1 1/2 yards FREE.  I'll share my purchases tomorrow.  I'm off to the Abilene Quilt show and will probably have more purchases to share with you.
