I was so goooood yesterday, got my top mailed out for quilting, finished a dolly quilt, and machine quilted a small wall hanging. I liked the WH too much to "toss it", but not enough to hand quilt it..*G*..I'm making progress. But then, best of all, I got to play. These are the beginnings. Betsy and I often feel the need to drive each other NUTS...knowing how we both dislike the "Aunt Gracies look", she gave me 30 (or probably 31, knowing her) of these blue and white checked centers, left from a snuggle quilt. "So what can you do with these?"LOL..and I rise to the challenge. I doubt this is what she is expecting me to have done. Gotta get more orange and purple and red in there tho... Posted by Picasa

I love playing with squares/log cabins. Aunt Gracie can get way tooo cute. Last year while making our donation quilt I kept slipping bits of black and red into the pastel to tone it down...or maybe tone it up?! Have fun playing!

What fun -- nice to be challenged once in a while -- and what do you challenge Betsy with?
