    Making a block for the kids

    We were using shapes today in class to make well shaped objects. So one group of the kids made a nice arrangement with some triangles, a hexagon and some rhombus'. So I figured I would make it into a quilt block and show them how you can use shapes in "real" life. So I am trying to get this done for tomorrow. When I get it done I will post it on here. ANd look further down the finished block is a few more posts down.

    Donna,

    I don't know...LOL
    On top of that I am probably going to spend the weekend in bed. I can feel a sore throat coming on. Ugh.... three of my kids were out this week because they were sick.

    if you can't sew, at least you can keep your mind busy looking at quilting books and material! :D
