Other people have rainy days, but when we have them in Florida, they come with names. So this rainy day is brought to you by tropical storm Andrea. Looks like the perfect day to stay in and sew a bit.
Here is a test block I worked out for a quilt that I would like to make for a someone who likes green. I saw it pop up a lot when I was looking for inspiration for the pink Arkansas Crossroads Variation. Sometimes it is called Crossroads and sometimes I have seen it called Linked Up. Either way, I wanted bigger blocks than the ones I saw in tutorials, so this version uses 2.5 by 4.5 inch bricks of green along with 4.5 inch background squares. I cut out enough pieces last night to put together a nice lap sized quilt I think. I'm off to do the math camp drop off, but after that I was asked to make a quick tutorial for the pink quilt and I should get busy with some serious block sewing together. Maybe with some nice hot tea to warm me on this cold and dreary day?
