I was beginning to feel cramped so I moved a couple of machines and cabinets around. This opened up more floor space to lay out quilts and patterns. Here are some pix, notice the mess everywhere:

So…I finished the blocks for Well Blankie and mailed them off to my cousin.  He and his daughters are going to arrange the blocks the way they like, and sew the blocks into rows, then into the top.  Then they will mail it back to me.  I PLAN on putting a border or two on it, and then quilting it for them.  Need ideas on how to quilt this puppy.

I found it easiest to pin a stack, sew them, then clip and press.  This became quite fast the last couple of blocks.

I’m really excited to have this project off my floor.  I even made huge progress on the Poe quilt now that the floor is clear!  That’s for another blog post though!
