My least favorite thing to do in quilting---Squaring up blocks---I just don't like it. But today I had alot of it to do. These are the cornerstone blocks for the quilt I'm working on now. There are 30 of them. They are done! YAY!

These are the embroidered blocks. More squaring up! Boy I'm tired! Aren't they lovely. My husband's Aunt did them. I'm putting this together for her to donate to a fund raiser at the hospital where she works. There are 24 of these and 12 of another kind, which will be put into another quilt.
These are two of the blocks with the sashing and cornerstones on my design board. I love the way they look but, I made a boo-boo. When I did the figuring for the sashing I didn't figure the right width for the middle strip. It was supposed to look like garden maze setting but instead I ended up with arrows. If you look at the sashing and cornerstones you will see the arrows. Oh well, I like it. Arrows it is. Tomorrow I have to piece together some more sashing because I miscalculated on that too. That is what I get for not paying real close attention during the planning stage. That is alright I can live with my mistakes. That is what is important, right?

Quilt til your arm falls off...
