More progress is being made on the Snail's trail! These are really fun, easy blocks to make...and I am really loving making them! About half done here.
Just Take Two. I did! Red and white...and these are not so much fun, so I have changed them up a bit so I can be a little more accurate. I wish I were a perfect piecer! I made so many mistakes in the house block that I designed this one, instead, and the heart on the roof can be my signature square. If at first you can't succeed...redesign it!!
I got all the borders done on the plaid giant fun quilt! It is ready to be quilted now...wheww!!!
This is the corner...and the last remnants of husband's pajamas, used in the red corner square. Maybe you already know this, but I was looking for the perfect fabric for another quilt...and spied my husband old worn out plaid PJ's on the ironing board. I proceeded to cut holes in them all over, using the good parts!! Long story short, dear husband (who has lots of other PJ's and I thought he would never miss these) went and found his PJ's and put them on...and found holes all over them!! It was truly hilarious...he had a good sense of humor and took it all in stride. The things our husbands put up with in a quilter's home!
These...these strings blocks are just delighting me!! I do love them so much...just me and the strings and a glorious mess in the kitchen, all around the table...just delightful!!!
***************Other Commandments they did not list but maybe should have**********************
1. Though shalt not dig through the trash at retreats and pull out little pieces of fabric to hoard!
2. Though shalt not idly look around at all the plaid shirts in church and think "maybe they would all leave me their shirts as they leave and wear home choir robes"
3. Though shalt not get caught cutting up dear hubby pajamas for quilts.
4. Though shalt not quilt and forget to cook supper!
Now, you add to this list!!! Hee!!!
Have a great day,
