Half done.......

.....with my block for the block design contest.   That's 96 pieces of fabric sewn together in two 6" finished blocks.   Some of which are about the size of a quarter The background_!

There are six pp'd strips in each block and each one takes about six minutes to make.  Adding the time it takes to sew them together and then remove the paper, each block quarter takes about an hr to make.  Could be a lot worse!  

I am loving how the block is looking with the replacement fabric that I found for it this past weekend.

Next up is working on the setting for the final quilt.   I've sketched out some ideas, but haven't made up my mind yet.   Still have one or two in my head that I'm trying to figure how how I can get them done.....might have to applique the sashings if that is the design I decide to do instead of piecing the sashing.   Or maybe make a combination of the two.

1. Kids were good for the sub while I was out last week for the medical appointments

2. There is another treatment to try to stabilize my platelets.

I really like this photograph. It looks different from the other one I saw, but it's probably the same one. LOL I can hardly wait to see the whole thing together. When high school students behave for the sub, it is a thing to celebrate!
