January was my month in the Common Threads virtual quilting bee and trips to the mailbox are yielding lots of quilty goodness. I've made a bunch and I've received a bunch from my bee peeps. The blocks are 6.5" square and I'm starting to get a vision of what this quilt might look like. I need a whole lot more blocks to make it the size I want it to be, so I'm trying to make a couple every day.
It's pretty cool to see what variations can be made from a simple, basic cross block. The creativity of these ladies is inspiring.
Thanks for all the quilt love for my selvage quilt and for Angela. To answer a few questions:
No, I won't sell the quilt.
Yes, I'm making another one of these.
No, I don't sleep with it, but I thought about it.
There are about 1600 selvage pieces in the quilt.
Yes, Angela is available to quilt for you.
Yes, it took a LOT of time to make.
No, it's not my favorite quilt that I've made.
Have a wonderful weekend. It's cold and rainy here, but the grass is turning green, the fields have been fertilized, so spring is around the corner.
