This is what I got done today! I have made 8 of these blocks. Two of each set of fabrics. I now have a total of 8 blocks and they will be set on point. This will make a nice lap-sized quilt. By the time that I add my setting triangles and a border, it will be the perfect size. I had planned on making it larger but I just don't want to make anymore and I don't want to put it in my UFO pile so I will stop now and add the borders. This is only one block but you will see the others when I get it all sewn together.
I got the pattern out of an old magazine that I have. It is an early 2001 issue of "Traditional Quiltworks" I loved the quilt in the magazine and had planned on making it for a long time, but just never got around to it. The blocks measure 15 inches and is called "Friendship Baskets" I dug out some setting and border fabric that I've had for a while. It is just a solid olive green fabric. I'm sure something else would look better but I don't want to have to buy anymore until I use some of this other fabric up. I'm not sure if I will work on it anymore tonight or not, right now I am just tired and am starting to get a headache. If I start feeling a little better I may try to finish the top, it won't take that long to do it.
The boys have been cleaning their room ALL DAY and it still isn't clean. It was a mess, there was just a small path from the door to the bed. I don't know how they could stand it but I swore that I would not clean it. It was their room they can keep it clean.
