I've finished 28 red and white blocks. I've decided I need to make 64 blocks, which should give me a quilt just under 100" square. My husband's only comment is "it's bright". He needs to get used to it, because this will be on our bed at least a month or two each year. It will certainly be perfect for February, don't you think? As you can see, I've run out of room on my design wall. I need to start sewing blocks and sashings together in order to fit an eighth row down the right side. So far I've pretty much flung the blocks and sashing strips up willy-nilly. I think it's time for some serious arranging so I can sew these together before I make more. I've used about 75% of my fabrics so far - the second picture shows the "used" pile. The third picture is of the fabrics I've not yet used. It's looking very much like I'll have red and white fabrics left over - time for a scrappy back ala Bonnie I think!
I've not shown any grandchild pictures for awhile, so on this Mothers' Day I'll post new pictures of Joseph and Sophie. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday today with their mothers, their children, or both.
