Yepper that's me a square.
Maybe lots of squares with in squares!!
I picked this quilt block from Quilter's Cache for a No Sew Block Swap.
When I sewed up the test block I was hooked.
So I pulled some greens and creams went to town measuring, cutting, pressing, sewing, pressing. Well you know the drill. It looked like a 'manly' top to me...;-)'
I decided DH needs a 'recliner quilt'...yes notice I did not say lap or nap quilt.
After all he does not REALLY NAP there ...oh no.. just rests his eyes and listens to the TV...;-)
Anyway the center top is done. Have to stop when you run out of some fabrics so was as good a place as any at 12 blocks. You can see the nice design flow of the blocks... even though this block could stand alone in a Sampler Quilt as well.
I plan to add a thin black border then another one using scrappy left overs which I cut to use as leaders and enders.(saves my high dollar thread ya know)
If I do not have enough to go all around will use them only at top and bottom.
Another black for binding. Not sure on my backing. I may try a soft fleece...any tips here??
Will just do a simple cross hatch quilting on my machine.
I have this cool looking green variegated thread I think I will use!
I also begin cutting and sewing on strips to add to my Linda B Siggie Squares.
Using some of the Pat Sloan Sweetbriar sale fabric I got from Fabric Hut!
It is going to be a fun addition to hang on my sewing room wall!!
So I hope to do more sewing today!!!
I am only on here as DH had to go into the office today!!
Normally we hang out together and I give him my undivided attention...wash up his kitchen mess ;-)
After all as a kept woman I have to take care of my man!!! Hahaha!
Once again thanks so much for all your kind words of encouragement the last week or more.
Today I am beginning to feel more like myself.
If I did not respond to you via email ( some are no reply) please consider this my way of saying YOU ALL ROCK!
Happy weekend ya'll!!
