When I started working on the new lower-case letters, I chose blue and white, figuring I might make a patriotic quilt. To give me inspiration, and possibly to go into the new quilt, I dug out some blocks that I started years ago.
I was planning on making a large quilt - not bed-sized, but a very large wall-hanging. My plan was to make 8" x 12" finished blocks (such as the one in the lower left corner, which is cut out of one piece of fabric) but I got bored with that quickly and decided that everything just had to be divisible by 2" when finished.
The little bit of red and white checkerboard is a leftover from a previous project you can see in one of my very early posts here.
Detail shots. Here are some skinny letters. Right now this block measures at 4.5" by 12.5"
I love my darling Lily cat, but my oh my, what a pest she was last night. She wanted to sleep right next to me no matter what. Shove her off the bed, she comes back. Pick her up and place her on my sweetie (who loves sleeping with a cat), she comes back. Block her from laying down, she circles around and comes back. Sheesh. Why can't she be that clingy when I want a cat to love on? During the DAY.
