On a roll!

Finished the BQ2 quilt. All it needed was borders, but geez, piecing borders and a back took forever! I think it may have taken longer than piecing the blocks! This was just something I put together quickly.  I should finish the red and white quilt today. Back to work!

I didn't post last week because it was my birthday.  I was in New York, and celebrated my nephew Joseph's 18th birthday on Friday night at the Cheesecake Factory.  On Sunday, my birthday, we started out the day by doing yard work! The nice weather from the week before had caused stuff to start blooming, so we needed to cut the roses back and cut some of the overgrown plants in the yard. Al took me to dinner at Caper's Sunday night, and I was so exhausted when we got back, I went to bed!

Age doesn't always bring wisdom. Sometimes age comes alone.

Hi Sandi! Here's a closeup of a block...they're huge - 24" - which means it comes together very's a weekend project for sure!

Hello my friend! I posted a closeup of the block - thanks for asking! I wasn't shouting from the rooftops about this birthday...I'm now 60-something. We usually do something to celebrate, go on a trip or something, but I wasn't feeling it. I'm very happy to be here and in good health! Thanks for the birthday wishes! Hugs!
