hide thine eyes; danger, danger.....
Yikes! Here are my two "see if I like it" blocks for Connor's college bound quilt
..............Man oh man--I could never sleep
under this vibrating thing!! It moves before my eyes....
Hubby (arbiter of all things "Male" with regard to colors, says it gives him a
headache and blurs his eyes!!) ;000000
Back to the drawing board for Connor's favorite "Red" colored quilt...
I only have really ever used reds along with greens for Christmas stuff; (and of course
in all postage stamp quilts), but not as a main color...I really don't know what (E A S Y !!)
pattern to use to make his now...I am SO happy that I made some test blocks instead
of just factory sewing all those squares together in twosies...PHEW!!
(patting me on the back LOL)
Any suggestions for a teen's mainly red quilt??? I was thinking of two options:
9-patches of gray squares with a red center and alternating with a square red block....
or square within a square blocks featuring red centers I wouldn't use those 2.5" squares
for the 2nd option, but cut larger ones...(I do have a 5" square die) Hmmmmm....nothing seems to hit me.
And here, Greg's quilt went together so well colorwise...I guess red is hard for me....
Tonight will be homemade chicken soup for supper,
with a side salad (the ever-present salad!!) and
with 1/2 store bought garlic bread--(I buy the Pepperidge Farm one--it is yummy!!) .
I boiled down the chicken carcass yesterday and will skim all the fat off today before using the
chilled broth. We are trying to eat lighter these days...especially at dinnertime...
Meanwhile, the WEIGHT stays the same (within in 1-2 lb variation)!! :00000
We plan on a walk around 4 before dinner--hopefully it will have cooled down a bit by
then as it is now 80 degrees with a dewpoint of 72--Hot hot hot....ugh!! Isn't it Fall yet???
hugs to you all
I am off to pin baste Greg's opus...
