Second finish

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.


  1. Another great finish. Have fun in Boston!

  2. A beautiful finish for the New Year! Enjoy your trip.

  3. I really like that quilt. Maybe I need to do one of my 16 patch quilts on point some time.

  4. You picked a better day to fly into Boston. Yesterday was so cold!
