two tries at the block exchange piece
The block exchange is for Ritzy Thimbles. Very easy block. Ends up being 16" square. So you don't need a ton of them to make up a nice quilt. With Modern quilting design using even few blocks on the top, then it should not matter how many you get, you can come up with something interesting!
At least the sun is out today! We went to Panera's for bagels and coffee with the car friends. I seem to be the only woman who shows up. Fine with me. These guys are really nice! They all tell some funny stories too.
I keep quilting on the two quilts that are in the frame and hoop. I haven't had time to work on the sheep much. I just have to mark on the calendar, TODAY you can quilt on your own stuff. Either that, or I get wound up in others quilts and cleaning... well, sort of on that....but you have to rake the carpet once in a while, or it goes to dust.
I have a couple of sayings on the board behind this computor.... "Stay Calm and Quilt", Plan to be surprised, "This could get loud." Pretty good ones to make me smile. I need to get some new ones! Got any you want to share? Patty
