    Anyone interested?

    I've made a block a day for the last 3 months. It's only difficult while traveling. The rest of the time, I say to myself, "Self, if you have time for the internet, boobtube or gabbing with Agnes Kravitz, you have time for a block."

    Today's block is from Carol Doak's free patterns page (love her). The ribbon in a heart ornament. Only 3". I made two and tweaked the second block to thin out the bulk. Carol's block looks better (of course, it does!). Here's the good one:

    Thank you for posting this, the ribbon block is perfect and just what I am looking for. I am currently working on a photo quilt to give to a young man's mom and one for his new bride . He landed in Afganistan today and this block will be a perfect finishing touch to work into the quilt.

    What a great challenge to set for yourself. I agree too...If I didn't spend so much time on the computer I'd get LOTS more sewing done.

    That's why I found it! My soldier is going to Afghanistan. I need to make a couple dozen deployment blankets so I thought about a block a day. And, here we are. :0) Connecting Threads, and some other places, have a larger Ribbon block in their free section. Also you can take six Contrary Wife(!) blocks and position them into a Ribbon block.

    I love Agnes Kravitz but she does go on. Poor Abner.

    Y'all can go on pretending you're not crazy type A's who love a block a day. I know better.

    Today's block is from fatquartershop's Pennsylvania Dutch BOM. 12".

    I love this!!! While I can't commit to doing a block each day (I have 3 high maintenance kids, lol), I really like this one. I have some autistic awareness fabric I'd like to use!!

    Thanks
