Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings is holding a stitch Along for Christmas here. Chelsey and I have decided to work on the blocks. I want my quilt to be bigger so each block pattern I'm making two. I have chosen black and white--at least for right now. Not Christmas-y but I'll use it a lot more.
My first blocks:
'Mom, how big do I make the squares before I cut them?' I hadn't studied the pattern, but Lisa';s instructions have always been really accurate. I looked at the pattern-- '1-4 1/4" , To a seasoned quilter, I completely get it. But I called and read it to her." one square four and one quarter inches... "Oh, that's what that means-- I had no idea."
It's fun sharing it with her. I'd make a seam and send her a cell phone photo. Technology is a wonderful thing.
