Thank you for searching your awesome stash. Cannot believe I stumped you. wink

There is a block called Ornery Husband as well. It's been so long since I made one that I have no clue what it looks like any more.

Couldn't find Ornery Husband in the Brackman book or at Quilter's Cache but I found something called Contrary Husband online so I can use that one.

Thanks for the suggestion because my DH is actually more contrary than I am.

Thus far I have made three nine inch blocks.

You will have a puzzle to put together.  You will enjoy that as you like puzzles.  I'll check my  stash for fabric with a parakeet in it.

ETA:  Glad you found a fabric with a parakeet resembling your childhood pet.  This sounds like a fun quilt.

I'm glad you see my motivation for tackling this project, Cathy.

The last two largish quilts I worked on did not "spark joy" (to quote the famous Marie whatshername who has people cleaning out their closets).  I made one small wallhanging that was fun to work on; it was a kit but frankly there are not many appealing kits out there that ring my chimes.

So when my fevered brain took me down the path to this idea I pounced on it ...could I make an autobiographical quilt with blocks that reflected my history? 

Why not give it a whirl?  Making my own rules as I go along. I think it is Suze that has said, "Your quilt, your rules".  (Or maybe it is Ami.)

Pieced blocks only

No applique.

No photos.

Bingo!  Your quilt/your rules!

Absolutely!

Likely Suze said "Your quilt, your rules." I wholeheartedly agree!

Sounds like fun to me.  It would be a good challenge project.  I'm not sure  possess the creativity required but I may try it.  It's on the list.

Did you teach school at one time. or am I remembering incorrectly?  There are lots of schoolhouse blocks out there.

Yes, I taught fifth grade while putting DH through medical school. Don't have many happy memories of those days (huge number of kids, loony principal and I finally quit in desperation) but thank you for reminding me of a useful block.

Left teaching to become a COBOL programmer ... wonder if there's such a thing as a punchcard block?  LOL
