It'll get done sometime!


Deadlines are hard sometimes -- I wanted to do a quilt for my brother's 50th birthday. At least I finished it in the same month, so I suppose it's not all that bad....

I like to make quilts with variable size blocks. They're fun to do for special occasions. And it's not as hard as it may look -- sort of like fitting a puzzle together. I make the blocks in multiples of 3 inches -- 3X3, 6X6, 9X9, 3X18 6X12, etc. I get most of what I want and lay it all out on the floor, and fill in with odds and ends as I need to. I like the way this one came out -- I hope my brother does too!
