A new quilt
I love making quilts for the boys. You saw Jahn's planet log cabin quilt.
Well Ben liked it so much that I made him one also. I had made too many of the blocks when I made Jahn's quilt, so I had a head start of 14 blocks. I had to buy a little more of the planet fabric and Don stopped by the LQS one day for me - he works about 2 blocks from the quilt shop (and yet he never spends his lunch hour browsing fabrics - go figure).
Now I think I'm done making quilts for the boys for a while - unless something else clever catches my eye.
I asked Ben if I could borrow his quilts to take to the monthly sew-in at Anacortes and he told me that I could, but that he needed them back by next Wednesday, when he is having a quilt marathon. When I asked him what that was exactly, he said it was when he put all the quilts in his house on the floor and made a display of quilts and pillows. I hope we are invited.
