I've been making string blocks for a long time now. I am ready to be done with them! If I use a setting with straight rows of color, it will be a very big quilt and I will need to make more blocks. I do have one queen size bed that could use a quilt.......
If I lay the blocks out in diagonal rows, I have plenty of blocks to be done. They are 8 inch blocks, so an 8 by 8 layout will make a 64 inch quilt. I think that is a decision that makes itself. I think I will go and pin the rows together before the dog scrambles the design for me. Honestly, I do enjoy the diagonal swaths of color. I should have just enough extra blocks for a baby quilt or a couple of throw pillows.
We took a beach walk in the afternoon instead of this morning because it was a bit chilly. Just a few hardy souls were out windsurfing in wet suits or huddled under blankets in chairs. I have just started a roasted chicken in the instant pot for dinner. We will find a festive holiday movie to enjoy after that or force the family into board games if everyone is in a good mood. I do enjoy vacations!
We are supposed to be seeing family over the holidays, but it is starting to look a little bit iffy. My nephew is under quarantine after his girlfriend tested positive and everyone else has gone out to get tested. I get tested pretty regularly with all my school exposure. My most recent test on Sunday came back as negative.
