Here are the curvy blocks trimmed to 10.5″ square. I think they will make a nice bright kid quilt.
Here is the second block. I only had enough of this fabric to make four. They are really cute too.
Here they are squared up. 10.5″ again. still cute.
here is a picture of the bargello quilt from American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. Isn’t it beautiful? Those scallops on the side hang off the side of the bed. I’ve never made a quilt like this, but it seems possible so I am going to give it a try.
Finally, here is another finished quilt for Project Linus. I got the quilting finished and the binding on yesterday. The blocks were all drawn by kids and are cute all together.
That’s all for now. Oh, I got to visit a lovely quilt shop in Marietta GA: Little Quilts. It was a fun road trip and look what they had sitting by the front door of the shop:
A beehive bird feeder and an actual old time beehive. The beehive is actually almost 2 foot tall. It is called a skep and is made kind of like weaving a basket. This gets me thinking of how cute it would be to have bee and beehive things around the house, kind of like I use to have black and white cows all over. Since Raymond is so involved in having an actual beehive, it would be extra cool.
