This is the first 1/3 of my Ruby quilt. One of the most difficult tasks (for me) in the quilting process is to evenly space blocks so that similar colors and patterns aren't clumped together. I'd actually rather baste a quilt than fuss too much over this process.
But, with good intentions I developed a plan by which I carefully stacked, counted and placed blocks on my working space (kitchen table) so that my layout would be perfect!
I wish I had a before picture. This is what my layout looked like after Mr. White Socks turned on the overhead fan!
Bless his heart! I guess the lesson is that perfection is bound to be thwarted! Or ..... don't cry over spilled milk. And when it comes fresh from the dryer all will be well!
In May I participated in a one on one swap with the wonderful Leanne of Lizzie the Quilter. She sent me the most delightful gifts! Isn't this an adorable mini quilt and aren't these sweet mug rugs?
And she also sent tea bags, lovely fabric and a tea towel. How wonderfully generous! She knows how fond I am of tea towels!
Thank you so much. Leanne!!
Have a wonderful week! XOXO and an extra XO
