Just a little something

I've been pretty busy lately, but I can't tell you or show you what I've been doing. Instead, I'll show you a little project that I'm working on for Debra's Pregnancy Project. This is in exchange for some embroidery work she is doing for me.

I am using the X-Block template for this, and it's going pretty darned fast! Too fast, actually. If I would have stopped and read the instructions when I started this so long ago, I would have realized that the nine patch blocks I made weren't sewn in the correct order. Leave it to me to make it far more complicated than it needed to be!

I am certain no one else does this but me, right?

First, I made the green ones, then I reverse-cut the purple ones. Then I gave up, put them in a box, and moved on with something else. So, yes, I know they would have been better all one color or the other, but I have so many of them made....and her project really needs another baby quilt, so off it will go this weekend!

Oh my, that sounds like something I would do...isn't that how so many orphan blocks are made - not reading the directions! the quilt looks really nice though!

I just bought one of those x-block rulers but haven't had time to do anything with it. Very cool to see your design. I might have to play this weekend. :-)
