One more block done
(AKA children), can you find a scrap from a quilt you have in your home?
The lower corner is a piece from "Paul's Plaid Stars" that I made papa 20 years ago for our 30th anniversary. I found enough of those blocks that I can probably go back and make repairs where Nikko has chewed holes.
I went up to the loft and laid the blocks I have so far on the floor.
Maybe the next book will bring up a block that will calm things down a bit.I have begun to read "State Fair" by Earlene Fowler. It shouldn't take me long, as I read it once before.
That being said, I had also read "The Quilter's Apprentice" by Jennifer Chiaverini and hardly remembered very much of the story.
Since "The Goodbye Quilt" turned out to be more of a memory quilt for the maker, I think the scrappy block at least fits the theme. Hopefully, those memories are not all mine.
So, now I need to get a new activity going so I will have take-along work for the weekend. At least the activity of the past few days has shown me there is no shortage of fabric to use,
