I haven't been blogging much this month.
I've been super busy.
Today, I finally got to do some sewing!
I stared this morning to make a quilt for my daughters school teacher.
She's had the same teacher for the last two years,
and she just loves her.
She wanted me to make her a quilt.
I figured a lap quilt would be a nice gift.
I was inspired by these two quilts.
I liked the idea of using narrow 1 inch strips with larger squares and rectangles.
My squares are 5 inches square and the rectangles are 5" x 10".
I've got 36 blocks made and part of the quilt top sewn together.
I'm using a fat quarter bundle of Heirloom by Joel Dewberry.
I've had this in my stash for a while.
This is a layer cake friendly pattern using my dimensions.
The colors in these photo's aren't true.
But it was dark when I took these.
I hope to have this top done tomorrow.
I'm running short of time.
Schools out next week.
