How many Blocks?

It looks like I really was stitching up a storm - I’ve had a count of my black and grey blocks left over from my grand-daughter’s horse quilt which I completed last year.  And they make a total of 34 – a great number to start horse quilt number 2 for my younger  equally horse mad grand-daughter. 

34 blocks already done

That certainly is a good start for Megan’s quilt, but still more will be needed for a big bed quilt.  So I’ve stitched up several strip sets.  Then sliced them all ready to make even more nine patch blocks.  Stitching these will keep me quiet for a while.

Even more blocks to come

My daughter Nicky popped in on Friday on her way down to spend the weekend in the big city.  And she had a gift for me - a belated Mother’s Day gift.  All made by her own fair hands, she proudly told me.  Isn’t she clever!

Hand made by Nicky

Hand made is always the very best. Still a few B&W to go, but that pile is impressive.

Wow, 34 blocks is a great start - about half the blocks you'll need?

Nicky's gift is wonderful
