I started this block on Friday. Large parts of it were salvaged from a block that sucked. It’s too late to go into the opportunity quilt so now will be the first block of a future quilt top. The outer area is yellow which was not used in the other opportunity blocks because the opportunity […]
I finished this one on…Thursday night? I can’t remember, it has been a busy Friday and Saturday. I’ll sew tomorrow, the old batteries are recharging on the couch today.

I’m planning on this being a double-sided quilt with the reverse side pieced from Robert […]
