I found a material last year that had neon guitars on it and picked up some for T to use in his quilt. He decided he wanted a basic 9 patch type quilt, so I am actually making a 12-patch. Same concept, just bigger. So I made these blocks yesterday:
and am going to turn these fat quarters (plus a blue and pink) into the same...they will all have the black, just different colors. I have most of the strips sewn together and am getting ready to cut them to sew into squares. I need to find a blue and pink to go with these.
I also want to do the sashing in the blue so I need to find something on a bolt, not just fat quarters. I also made 4 more blocks for my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. They are getting easier, but they are not coming out at 6.5" but more like 6" and I am a bit confused as to what size they are supposed to be. Some papers say 6" and some say 6.5" is that finished or unfinished? I figure though as long as they come out the same size, why worry??
And lastly, a picuture from last night's basketball game. We lost, 24-22 in OT. One of our guys scored a 3-pointer right at the buzzer to tie it up. Very exciting, since we were losing 19-7 at the half!
Oh, and it is snow....AGAIN!
