Needlework Tuesday - Seeing blue - blue blocks that is
I finished up the blue blocks that I started last week. That jumble of blue turned into eleven stripey blocks. They will be added to the other coloured blocks I pieced previously. I still have to make the yellows and reds blocks. I am planning a 5x7 block arrangement, nothing fancy. Hopefully another member of my bee will take on the task of quilting, or we'll knot this one. Then it will be donated some where.
Ros-the-Quilter, suggested that I use the 505 basting spray. Wow, that stuff works great. I hadn't tried it before, though I will be using it again. Thanks Roslyn.
I did lots of quilting as I know this will have to be washed frequently. I've learned that the hospitals require the children's blankies be washed or changed almost daily due to germs. He is doing well in his treatments and is mostly an out-patient now, but should this wear out in the wash, I'll happily volunteer to make another.
Thanks for visiting with me today and I welcome your boarder suggestions for the floral centre quilt. Mister linky is waiting below.
