I Only Thought I Was Done
I must admit to a bit of a quirk when it comes to numbers I feel comfortable with. I like numbers that are 'fun' like 11:11 on the clock, 318830 that spells my name upside down, and 252 that goes with an old joke by George Carlin.
I also like getting out of bed when the clock reads on the hour and will actually watch the clock to wait for it!
I feel uncomfortable when things don't come out evenly and so, when I ended up my baby quilt top project with 23, I couldn't stop thinking about 'rounding up' to 25 as a good stopping point.
I had taken a workshop with Karla Alexander, the author of this book:
She gave us a handout with one of the easiest blocks to make with just 5 fabrics and I used that to make my two additional quilts.
Sharing today the one made from scraps left over from my mystery quilt made on the cruise last fall.
Since I was running up against the deadline for the end of the project I chose to do the whole job, right through the backing and quilting. These quilts all have a binding made by double-turning the border to the back and top stitching it.
Tomorrow will be the last (25th) quilt in the baby quilt project.
