My Sow-along Blocks are Done!
I finished the blocks yesterday and I am so happy that I finally got the last one done. I had fallen behind but I was determined to finish all of the posted blocks.
Here they are all together on the design wall. It looks like a big messed up dogs breakfast but once sashing is added it will calm things down and you will be able to see each block individually instead of as one huge mass. There are 67 blocks in total and even with sashing and a border added there is not quite enough blocks for a bed sized quilt. This is going to go to my husband and it needs to be bigger so I think I will have a look at the Farmer's Wife book and pick out some more blocks to add to my little collection.
I haven't done any sewing yet today but I do plan on getting some done later this evening. I have been neglecting my 'duties' and I need to spend some time today cleaning and cooking. I have already done the dishes and made a big pot of soup and have put a large container of it in the freezer for another day. I still have some baking to do and cleaning - oh how I wish my house could keep itself clean!
