I think it's pretty sweet. And since I recently took a great class at Quilted Threads on using rulers for machine quilting....
I will practice using rulers in quilting this little top.
The top middle block above wasn't part of Barbara's blocks - it's a Rolling Stone. I'd made it to experiment with a possible block to use for my daughter Noelle's wedding quilt (she was married in March and so she and husband Keenan get a quilt for their first Christmas as a married couple;).
Noelle and Keenan want grays and blues...
I decided on 9" inch blocks...
to include some Japanese indigo and tsumugi:
I did spend almost all day today, in the sewing room. I really try to schedule one full day a week to quilting, when I can. That means scheduling the days ahead of time. I usually put on an Audible book, or watch/listen to a familiar movie, or watch/listen to some light TV show on Hulu (current favorite is Brooklyn 99) .... but today I watched/listened to the Kavanaugh hearing, the whole thing, and shed some tears.
But to end this post on a lighter note... check out this cute cat... simple 12" block which was one of the block patterns offered at our Guild meeting this week. The idea is to piece a block, and bring it in. There is a raffle, so some lucky quilter gets the whole pile of blocks. It will be cute to see what everyone uses for buttons. I do think a whole quilt of various cats would be adorable but I am very carefully NOT starting any new projects right now. Anyway, I think I would add whiskers and a little smile to each cat;).
