but not quite 'all the live long day' *VBS* I confess to having taken some play time with orphan blocks. Yes, the UFOs are still on the front burner, but play is good!
I have both of these going at the same time, using orphan blocks and parts from Em's box. It's interesting with orphan blocks quilts, that while you can put "everything" in any one of them, sometimes they grow towards "flavor intense". I could tell almost immediately that these two were going to be opposite of each other. I tend to favor the brighter one,but since the other wants to be "that way", I will oblige but keep using reds. Thanksgiving was nice, and I enjoyed the company of my kids and their spouses. With football in the background, it was lively around here and the food was good. The weather co-operated and no one had travel difficulty. I was tired yesterday, and a nap was needed, but I am climbing back up to speed today...time to get busy!
And since the high loft batt arrived via Turkey transport, I can now turn these 20 blocks into a snuggle quilt. It will be a Christmas gift, and is one of my 5 UFOs to finish. Catch up with you later!
