    50th Anniversary Quilt

    My DSIL and DBIL celebrated their 50th Anniv. this past Saturday. This is one of my go to patterns when I need something quick. The 4 hr Carpenters square. It is hard to see in the pictures but the gold has a metallic shine to the swirly pattern in it and the blue green(like a soft robin egg blue) has a metallic pattern in gold in it. The pictures do not do the colors justice. Hope you like it. Goes in the mail today.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, how large are your individual HST's. I love it.

    Nice work! Only 4 hours!?? I've wanted to make one, but have no reason to. Maybe I'll make one and donate it to the newborn's that have to be admitted to our NICU. That's what I do, when I need to piece, but have no one in particular in mind...! Thanks for the idea!!!
    Go forth and sew!

    It takes longer than that to cut out and get ready, at least for me. Sewing does only take that long or less.
