My grandmother was a quilter. She taught me a lot and I spent many evenings stitching on quilts with her, but I have never created a quilt by myself. I have thought about quilting many times, but I have never taken the plunge. When I came upon In Color Order's Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month tonight, I must have been feeling very optimistic about the amount of free time that will be available to me this year. What really excited me was that I would only need to learn to make half square triangles and then arrange them in different patterns. Even better, I would only need to create one quilt square per month. This seems totally achievable. So now, I am publicly committing to this project and have placed the button on the sidebar. I am getting started late so I am giving myself permission to make the blocks the month after they are introduced. If you want to join the LATE block of the month club, hop on over to In Color Order.
The Hubster will roll his eyes when he reads this post (you can bet I won't be telling him in person). Not only is he waiting for his t-shirt quilt that I started a few years ago to be finished, I also recently agreed to make curtains for his office. You can be sure that A E Ferret will try to claim the quilt squares since they will be perfectly ferret sized.
