A New Quilt

The lovely girl who does my waxing is having a baby!

I don't need a better reason to make a new quilt!

Lots of 3 and 1/2 inch squares in white and a variety of colors from my stash!

(It didn't cost me a penny! Gotta love that!)

And 3& 1/2 X 1 & 1/2 rectangles

And 1 &1/2 inch squares

And sewing .....

and sewing.......

and sewing......

And you have a quilt!

This is a traditional quilt called "Puss in the Corner"

Usually made in blocks,
but this was made in rows!

Probably the closest I will get to giving a tutorial!

The colors make me hAppY!

Now for the real challenge - machine quilting!

I will up-date you when I cross that bridge!
