One down and 43 more squares to go.
This may take all week and a really good book on tape to keep me going.
Have you ever made something and then put it aside and forgotten making it? I pulled out my bag to bring to the hospital today and saw this quilt which I completely forgot about.
I just remembered that this pattern is one of the QOV blocks that I made that went very fast, so I used it for a lapghan. Hopefully the colors will be acceptable.
On the same subject of the lapghans, this is the crocheted lapghan I made with the revised border.
I took out all of the single crochet stitches and used a double crochet shell pattern for the border. It looks much better.
In April Barb of Bejeweled Quilts http://bejeweledquilts.blogspot.com/2011/04/ten-minute-blocks.html let us know about Suzanne McNeill's You Tube how-to's for blocks that are big, go very quickly, and look great. I think I'm going to try making those blocks next for the hospital lapghans because it will probably take only 4 blocks with border to meet the 40 inch requirement and they look great.
Tomorrow is Christmas Quilt Along Saturday and I am looking forward to it. What am I going to do?
I'm thinking about that:) I have some charm packs of 2010 Christmas fabric and want to make something nice with them. But I have other possibilities as well.
I just wanted to mention something about the FabShopHop. This month the quilt block patterns are for the cutest Halloween Quilt. I was surprised that I got most of the block patterns on the first day that I played along. I don't do much for Halloween but I am planning to make this quilt. http://www.fabshophop.com/enews/FabShopHop_enews_halloween-smplr_6-29-11.html
Hope you are all well.
