DQS10 blocks

Last night, I fell when I was
coming into the house.
Not sure if I tripped,
slipped, stumbled or what.

I fell on both of my (bad) knees.

Must have wrenched my back when 
I was trying to not land on my knees
because it sure was bothering me.
I didn't sleep more than an hour or two last night
and I could barely walk when I got up this a.m.

So, I stayed home and didn't do much of anything.

Until tonight, when I am finally more comfortable.

I did a bit of sewing...
several short spurts
got these blocks cut out & sewn together.
They are for the dqs10 quilt.
(do you like my makeshift design wall??'s batting pinned to my window curtains)
The half-square triangles along the right side
measure 4 1/2 inches.
The churn dash, friendship star & monkey wrench
blocks measure 6 1/2 inches.
The rest of the blocks 
measure 4 1/2 inches.

I will find a pleasing layout for these
and will fill in with a variety
of 2 1/2 inch half-square triangles.

My swap partner likes traditional blocks
made with modern fabrics.
I think I got it right.

The finished quilt will
measure about 24 inches square.

Have a great weekend!

So sorry to hear about your fall! I really don't like falling...we just aren't used to it like we were as children. I hope the pain lessens and your rest this weekend becomes more comfortable. Nothing worse than back pain...everything tenses up then. The quilt project is beautiful. Nice ingenuity with the planning board!
Take good care,

Falling on already bad knees is not good! I hope you're all better soon!
