So, here's where those retro rectangles wanted to go. Funky, eh? The whole thing is about 24x26 inches or something like that - not real big. And you can't tell this in the photo, but the tiny blue border is actually a little flange, not a border. We only had a tiny bit of the blue or I might have used more. When I say "we" in this instance, I of course mean Cathi, as I am raiding her stash for this work. I feel less guilty about this than I might a)because she said I could, b)because I am leaving a bunch of my purple Civil War Repro fabric with her and c)because I might give her this mini quilt anyway.
Not sure how it will be quilted yet - perhaps just echoes of the curves in the small blocks and something funky in the border. That's a job for another day. But not tomorrow as we will probably spend the entire day out with the kids &DHs somewhere doing touristy things.
Tomorrow, however, is the blogversary draw! So unless we get back really really late, I'll post the winners tomorrow night. Yeehah. I might even mail the postcards from Ireland - I did cleverly remember to bring them with me. :)
