It's always a good day when inspiration hits.
Don't you think?

You may or may not remember way back in March
when I had all the fabric cut for my son's quilt.
A wedding gift for Paul & Rachel.
They got married in December.

Au.then.tic + a red and a purple and more blacks.
Here are the blocks all cut...
 then all sewn together...
I started putting the blocks together...
and didn't like how it was looking.
At all.

So, I put it all away.
Waited for inspiration.
And, waited.

woohoo...finally got some!
Inspiration, that is.

I reverse-sewed all the blocks.
Didn't take long.
A few nights in front of the tv.

I don't plan to mix the other
fabrics with the Au.then.tic. fabrics.

Maybe will use them on the back.
Time will tell.

I now have 2 blocks done.
Started sewing the rectangles together 
and then cutting them in half, 
then making rows.
The 'squares' are not quite square,
but I wasn't going to trim them all.
And, in the end, it doesn't really matter.
Does it?

 I have 2 blocks done...
36 'not quite squares' in a block...
each block measures about 16.5 x 18 inches.
There will be 25 blocks...
making the finished quilt about 80 x 87 inches.
(my largest quilt, yet!)

I think Paul and Rachel will be happy.

  I know I will be.
As long as this comes out the way 
I see it in my head, that is. 


Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10
