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!

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.

Great fabric choices for your block!

Thanks, Ami. 

Part of the fun in creating this outlandish quilt is that I can go where my imagination takes me because I don't really have a plan. Over the years of making quilts I have collected so many impulse purchases of FQs and other pre-cuts that just struck my fancy because great colors or attractive patterns or nice textures.

Now these "pretties" are piled on my sewing table or my ironing table and in a large box and I am pawing through them looking for fabrics that might go with block patterns I want to use; I'm a bit like King Midas of mythological fame sifting his hands through his treasures, seeking the next lucky find.

I get annoyed when I have to cook a meal or do  a load of laundry. I think of Mr. Pirate and wish I could borrow him because I recall Pirate mentioning he is an expert at domestic arts at their house.
