It's a traditional signature block (5" squares with 2.5" snowball corners on the diagonals) and isn't that border great?  It's amazing what you can find when you dig through stash!  This quilt came together last Saturday morning when the quilt ministry ladies met as we cranked out the signature blocks right and left.  I drew the task of assembling the blocks into a ...

Lazy Day from Quilts....etc.

I just didn’t feel like much sewing yesterday – I was caught up in a book.  I did decide to redo that block I showed the other day for the RSC20 – that dark spot just bugged me – didn’t take but 5 minutes or so to redo. Original – you see the dark blob […]
