Description

After cutting fabric for nearly 60 blocks, mailing out fabric for 22 of those blocks, and life in general... I have finally started to work on my share of what I hope will be my king-size quilt! The first of my quilts that will actually be for me! I managed to finish one block during today's naptime!

January 24, 2015- 75 x 90 (minus seams)..... I think I need to measure my favorite blanket to see what size I want... We have a queen bed, but I like lots and lots of overhang! Looking at my initial measurements, that seems like way too many blocks. It would be twice what I have now! ....reworked measurements.... 20 blocks to go! So close, yet so far!

June 14, 2015- Are we there yet? No. 18 left to go. Apparently I've only done part of two blocks in the past six months! My goal was to finish by the end of the bee! Sigh.... So not happening. If anyone is keen to make some of these blocks, I'll happily mail you everything you need! Really.... My pleasure ;-P

I just finished my August blocks (out with the mail today!) and I loved making them. I can't wait to see them all put together.
