    Twenty Blocks Sewn in One Day

    Okay, the blocks only have seven pieces each, but there are thirty blocks. I just finished. Whew! Tomorrow I will lay them out to see what the placement will be.

    what design did you so. please show us what you did. I always need a quick design. congrats on your blocks.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I knew I said that wrong. It was thirty blocks. I will take a picture later today.

    I am sorry I messed that up. I really did all thirty since about noon yesterday. I am naming it "Do Not Disturb" like the little signs in hotels. I plan to keep this one and spend a lot of time wrapped in it with my eyes closed. As I fell into sleep last night, I was thinking I could quilt it with sheep all over. Just a thought.

    I plan to add a border but not sure yet what color. It will be 56 x 66 when done.

    That Is great..just goes to show that when you are not disturbed much quilting can get done. I sometimes cook enough for several days so that I can devote more time to do what I want. DH does not eat at regular times..so he uses the microwave a lot. For a Mexican man he doesn't expect me to serve him or warm his tortillas..learned that a long long time ago.

    I'm enjoying your quilts with batiks recently! This is another that shows the fabric beautifully!

    Thanks for the picture. That's going to be a beautiful quilt. It will be so snugly warm. I think quilted with sheep would be fantastic.

    Boston that's impressive and attractive quilt...I am slow & I admire those who can whip through things.

    mamagrande - that's the best kind of guy to have. First I let the cooking go (lots of one-dish or 'get your own' meals) & then the housework (except sporadically about once a week) & then the garden: DH did complain about the vegetable garden though (my favorite to work on out of the three anyway).

    Congratulations on 43 years!

    I would audition several fabrics and choose the one that pleases you best. Blue - calming, purple - royalty, green - happy, red - hot, yellow overpowering, etc.
