Here is November's step:
|Units 1, 2 and 3|
|SO purty!! And the centres are STARS!!! My favourite block.|
In full disclosure, I do only have two of the eight blocks sewn together. This is because A) I have a bad head cold and the other night couldn't face, make that didn't want to risk, quilting on Dayna's quilt so I made up a couple of these, and B) almost all day today I have been quilting on Dayna's quilt, which is why I don't have the other 6 done. I started off today in a bit of a "nose taps on full blast", snot-gobbling way, so I thought I'd ease into my day after last night where I maybe had 3 hours of solid sleep, by making the half blocks.
Remember I did not have enough of the taupe-ish background, so I added in the ivory cats, since it matched the theme of the red cats fabric...it looks worse on these photos than in person, at least to my bleary eyes, lol. Once it is quilted, hopefully it will all read okay.
I apologize for being behind in responding to comments and in visiting your blogs. As you know, I had 8 lovely days with the best grandson on the planet, bar none, and now I have a graduation quilt that needs to be finished asap. Here's a sneak peek, (Dayna stop reading!!) of the early progress:
I haven't put anything much on lately about her quilt because she wants to be surprised, but oh, it has been causing me serious angst. Kind of similar to the angst daughters can cause... never mind; the angst dissolves when you think of the deep boundless love you have as a mother for your daughters...
|Angela Walters, my heroine, always says you have to love the person very much if you're adding in a ton of fine detail...well I think you get the idea of how very very much I love Dayna (I know she's going "meh, yeah, yeah, Mum, stop")|
This quilt, which is for my darling daughter, of whom I am so very proud (I know you're still reading, Dayna ;-) who has accomplished so very much in the past 5 years especially, is my main crush of late. Well, no Brady is. Ha. Anyhow, I can't wait to show you more once this is done. I'm linking up with Beth at Cooking Up Quilts for the first time for her Main Crush Monday linky.
