Now to buy some backing and decide on the quilting. And…..
decide what to do with this green blocks I didn't use, and……..
cut up the scraps into usable sizes. Be sure to go to http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2015/01/grand-illusion-mystery-link-up.html to see everyone else's links. They are all beautiful!
Meanwhile, I have been thinking about the graduation quilt I want to start for our grandson. Deciding on a pattern has been on my mind for several months. I used a square in a square block for his brother's graduation quilt, so don't want to use that. They both love sports, so I need to include some machine embroidery on some of the blocks with sport designs. I made these sample blocks yesterday with a plan in mind to include some embroidery in the center of the star blocks and alternate with the "Homeward Bound" block. (I am sure that block has some other names.)
I like the graphics and it should make a masculine looking quilt. I like the name of that block for young man leaving home for the first time, off to college and the big world.
We have a cold snowy day here in Missouri, so I hope to
Keep on stitchin,
