A little More Woven

I've been adding to the woven blocks. I am really liking the homey comfy feel of this quilt. I've enjoyed the challenge of finding 24 traditional 8" blocks. I've had to sharpen my math skills to make a few of the blocks work. But that is not all bad.
I had Jane over to look at her blocks she is pleased with them but she doesn't care for the ric rac handle on the basket. I was sad because I love ric rac. But it's all good I'll just find another home for this cute little basket. And make another block.
Then add some sashing and corner stones, a piano keys border. Very appropriate for my childrens piano teacher, don't you think? I'll do this soon because I don't want to keep Jane waiting for her quilt.
But I must admit I have put the blocks in a nice little storage box for now because I'm playing with other things.Posted by Picasa

  8. Em! What woven beauty and fun. If this isn't a great place to be this morning over coffee gf, I don't know where is better... This is just darn happy fun.

    I'm shaking my head and typing so fast and talking as I type and thinking "gosh I should get out my woven stash" and now I'm saying... "Oh no, I've been distracted before 8am!"

    *karendianne. who doesn't do ric rack either. (ps: very cool about tightening up the math skills. I could us a challenge like that... wouldn't like it but would be good for me)
