64 8"x8" blocks, all pieced up! Now I need to rip off the newspaper backing and lay them out to make sure I like their placement (tomorrow, day), sew the top (tomorrow night), and then quilt it (Sunday night) and bind it (Monday night), so I can maybe show it off at the guild meeting (Tuesday night , if I can find a babysitter, as C will be out of town again), and then deliver it to the lovely couple sometime next weekend... It's taken me 4 months of slow and steady piecing to get these bad boys done. C really likes it and "is jealous." Guess I know what he's getting for Xmas, even if it does create a HUGE messy pile o scraps!
I'm living in my home town of San Pedro, CA, (forgotten suburb of LA), with my WONDERFUL husband, 3 children (and 3 cats, a fish, and 2 big dogs). I love sewing, knitting, embroidery, dancing, reading, and learning new crafts...(when I'm not busy playing trains or construction, of course...) I also love ellipses and parenthetical statements.
