42 blocks x 8 pieces each

= question my sanity!

6 p.m. Saturday, after spending all day cutting and laying out stars so no two were alike and each had a definite light and dark

11 p.m. Saturday, trying to figure out all the little pieces needed to fill it in (you can't see it, but those light blues are 2 different patterns....yes, I am certifiable).

3 p.m.'s all on the design wall, though we dare not turn on the ceiling fan! 

4:00 p.m. Sunday - Reward before sewing (dirty martini, 3 olives, shaken, not stirred)

4:30 Sunday, we figure out they will sew together as blocks (oh, thank God! thought I had to work with piecing  long diagonal strips across width of quilt...phew!)

Sunday 5:30 p.m., 1 row, 3 blocks in. Need to break to fix dinner. Daughter has just arrived to silence grandpup who has been yapping incessently since noon....every once in a while I wander to the top of the stairs and yell 'Rick! Put a sock in it!'. Unsuccessful.

This needs to be a quilt top by class time on Friday. Can she do it?????

  1. "Can she do it?" "Yes she can!" It looks great and I'm really looking forward to seeing the top completed.


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
