A couple of months before my sweet Dad passed away last May, a friend asked if I would piece some blocks so she could hand-quilt a quilt for her son. I said yes, we picked out the fabric, my Dad got sick and went to Heaven, I moved twice, I lost the pattern in my moves . . . let's see, what other excuses can I think of right now??
Well, I don't have to because I have been hard at work all this week getting the 36 - 10" blocks done!! Woo! Hoo!! I only have 9 left to finish!!
This was a block that Lynne found in an old quilting book. It is called "Clay's Choice" or "Star of the West." I am sure back in the day, it was cut and pinned and sewn together and took forever to do each block. But I made a pattern for each of the quadrants and paper-pieced it!! Thank goodness for paper-piecing - it only took about an hour for each of the finished blocks. The quilt requires 36 pieced blocks and 36 plain blocks and will measure 80" x 90". This is one UFO I will be happy to send to it's home!! :-)) And I am sure Lynne will be happy to have all her blocks too!!
