I've been working working working on all these little blocks ( 3.5 inches! ) and I might be finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel - HOORAH!
I have all the square in a square done,,
I have all the strips sewed and cut into 1-1/2 pieces for the 9 patches
I have the inner 9-patch blocks done and trimmed and pressed
and there still seems like a lot more to do -- please play the violins for me, you know the sad songs? On the good side,,, I got to go spend time this weekend with The Amazing Grandson and The Most Precious Granddaughter. They always rejuvinate me. Amazing Grandson told me I was his favorite granma! I told him it was because I was the granma sitting next to him and he said
"Oh NO Granma - You ARE my favorite and I love you very very much!"
Now, doesn't that just make you want to tear up and give him a big ol hug??!!
Ok, I wiped my eyes and blew my nose -- back to the quilts
My friend tirane and I have been doing this quilt together. Same basic design but we both put our own touches to it, our own colors.
She is a much faster sewer than I am so ((( aarrrggghhh -- that bad 4-letter word W-O-R-K gets in my way ))) she is putting her borders on!!!
Check out what she did at http://quiltifications.blogspot.com/2009/02/at-long-last.html
Maybe when I'm done we can post both of the quilts together -- kinda cool to see what two friends do together!
