I started setting the blocks I have made today. I am so excited and pleased with how the quilt is coming out that I can hardly wait unit Jan. to start sharing the patterns. I have settled on making mine 5x6 instead of 6x7 like Ms. Snyder made hers. I will eliminate blocks that are too, too difficult to draft and those that I simply don't like. I plan to set the blocks in their original places, but substitute the outer row blocks for the inner blocks I eliminate. I will choose blocks that have a similar look and color to them.
I've also found my perfect blue. It is a periwinkle blue from Judie Rothermel's Lancaster County III collection, so how fitting. The next block to draft is the Pennsylvannia block and even though I don't care for it, it must be included.
Daphne is modeling the grocery tote my daughter designed and made for my sister for Christmas.
It is similar to one I shared this summer.
I'm all done with handmade gifts!
Two more gifts to purchase, but I know what I am going for, and then some wrapping and I will be done.
We will take off this week for Napa.
Could be a treacherous drive with all the flooding and expected snowfall between here and there.
Wish us a safe trip and I will return to blogland after Christmas!
Merry Christmas to All and a Happy New Year too!
