I don't know if anyone has a linkup for Tuesdays, but I have a finish to report! And since the limo is coming at 5 a.m. tomorrow to take me to O'Hare for my 7:30 flight to Boston, I'm posting the photo now.
You've seen the front: the batik nine-patch made out of the Block Swappers' birthday blocks. It's 54 x 70.
Here's the back: a bright tropical print with two different side strips.
I didn't feel like making a more elaborate pieced insert. The quilting is really simple -- in the ditch between the blocks and straight lines through the nine-patches. Each border triangle has two parallel V's. 2-7/8 yards for backing and binding.
My suitcase is packed, ALA documents are downloaded or printed out, and I have a big note to myself to remember to bring the phone and iPad chargers.
Now, to get a good night's sleep.
