Are you right or left leaning??
HI Y'all. You know, I never, ever would have said Y'all...ever. Then I moved to Texas, and by golly, I am saying it!! Above are the rectangle blocks...they are the most fun ever!! Just grab a strip and sew one on, flip and sew another on. Try for a 45 degree angle, but don't stress over it...Yahoo!!! Not a political statement, but I realized after the first few blocks that every other block had to be "stripped" to the left or right, so the quilt would zig zag.
The rectangles are 4x8 inches. Looks kind of Gee's bend-ish or something, yes?
I am not without companionship while I quilt...Here is Rosie Posie Pudding Pie, the best poodle on the whole block!! (May be the only one...) She is so cute...see how little she is? I thought it was cute that she was holding on to her toy and snoozing. And her hair ribbons have been in a whole day, but they won't last much longer, I am sure, LOL!
And this pretty fellow! He was on the wall, by the garden...isn't he a lovely green?
