I didn't feel like you double dog dared me.  I just thought it sounded like an interesting challenge.  I'm sure your quilt will look great and give you a smile every time you look at it.

Two more great blocks.  Your quilt is really coming along.  Easy to get wrapped up in a quilt project and forget the rest of the house.blush

Yes, that's my motivation to stick with it. It will kind of be like a crazy photo album flapping in the breeze or some kind of memory-jogger that I can babble about when I am old and forgetful. stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

I've been practicing free motion quilting and learning some new designs, using some veteran quilts.  I am officially tired of red/white/blue quilts after doing 4 of them in a row.  Also tired of quilting - I need to do some piecing for a change.

I like that random, geometric pattern.

I really like the first one with that classic shell base. Second one is really fun too.

You’re in my prayers for your “. I'm going in for a surgical procedure in two weeks and it had better work and get my blood pumping better so my brain works better. stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

I love this idea for your “memory quilt”  you should make each of the twins one! 
 Prayers going up for your procedure.

Thank you, Sandy.

Here's a new block for you to ponder, the "Contrary Wife" block.

Found the perfect fabrics because I had red-orange hair (which is very faded now) but I still have freckles, greenish eyes, pale skin and black moods so these fabrics indeed do represent this particular contrary wife in Ohio.
