BLUES FOR GREG
.I have made 25 blocks and each one has 18 (2.5") little squares --
sewn into three strips, separated by three maroon-ey strips...(.I can't get far enough away from my design wall in my tiny sewing room to get a full picture...)
Here are two other portions:
I hope to sew them together this week. They (obviously)
need trimming up to one consistent size.
A lot of these squares are from the swap I did two years ago and also some mini-charm packs--
so,---- 2.5" per square is just a "suggestion". Hahaha....
I have ironed all the seams open--lots of up and down from my sewing chair--that has to count for something, right????;)))
Today was a blessed relief from heat and humidity --lovely cool breezes from the
northwest flooded our area....aaaaaahhhhhh
P.S. Am now collecting red 2.5" squares for the other twin's (Connor) quilt
--so far I have 222--I need a total of 450
that's how many I used in Greg's quilt...and yes, I am crazee
about working with squares that is....and maybe just a little mentally, ya think????
