Hi all! Has everyone had enough basketball now? It's all basketball all the time around here right now. Thankfully my husband only makes me watch the really interesting finishes, and not all the games are exciting. I do enjoy some of those dramatic finishes, though, so it works out.
Today I just have three more of the Grandma's blocks in different colors:
I made these to "catch up" after I realized that I need about 30 blocks to make a decent-sized quilt. After this, I'll be making two of the main colors and one of the accent colors each month. Unless I hate any of the colors involved, then it's whatever I want. I don't think I'll be making black blocks, for example. And January's accent color was purple, so I skipped that and made a green-yellow block instead. It was a pretty dismal day, so I couldn't get a good picture of the real color. This is as close as I came:
Yeah, not good. I promise it's a really pretty color, though.
Look how much these add to the blocks I've already made:
Now *that* looks more like a quilt I would make! Much happier all around. I've also really improved at making these. It's all about the seam allowance, so that the points match at the corners. This is the first time I haven't had to rip anything to make it all match. Feeling pretty proud of myself!
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. I am going to do some sewing for the wedding, and it will involve cutting into my mother-in-law's 68 year old wedding dress. Not that I'm nervous about it or anything. Just a family heirloom, that's all. Nothing to be worried about.
Happy Easter to those who celebrate!
