This has been a crazy month for me! Some of you who follow, know I am a nurse who travels as part of a compliance team for a long term care company. The month of January saw me traveling to Texas, twice to Orange County, and last week to Idaho. Boy, was it COLD there! I get a little reprieve this week and get to work from home (Yay!). It is nice to be able to enjoy the warmer climate of Phoenix! After all, this is the time of year to be here. Our days are seeing temps in the low 70's - great hiking weather.
In celebration of being home, I pulled out a project I started after Christmas and worked on it a bit more. Here are some photos:
I laid out the half square triangles of the Blitzen quilt, then marked and stacked them
Ready to begin stitching the rows together. There are 6 squares per row, 6 rows per section.
Here are some shots of them all put together
The pattern calls for only 2 borders but I will be adding 3. The fabrics for this are from Basic Grey for MODA fabrics. They are absolutely beautiful! Now the biggest decision will be what pattern to quilt over the top! Any suggestions? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
Until next time . . .
