Its a Kim Brackett pattern called Island Chain. I made the quilt bigger and it has given me lots of headaches. Truly--headaches! I have to sit on a chair in front of the wall with the book/picture. I need my glasses to see the picture. Then, when looking at the wall I shove my glasses on top of my head. I pieced parts of the blocks as I put them on the wall, not my favorite method but necessary to make the interlocking pattern appear. Not interlocking so much as optical illusion. This is hopefully the final layout. See everyone's design walls at Patchwork Times.
I finished quilting the Ozark Leaf quilt. That quilt does NOT want to be a finish! While quilting the little green flange strip wanted to flip over. Grrr. But Ken made a quick trip to the Dollar store for Elmer's School glue. I glued the edge down, then took the iron and pressed/dried it flat.
Yes, while it was on the Princess. Used my hand underneath as the pressing mat. I had to do each section as I advanced it on the rollers, but it WORKED!! Never overlook School glue as a tool while quilting!

Grandpa doesn't always get to go along, the week before he did and Asher wanted Grandpa to read his story before naptime.

No plans for this week, just stay warm and sew. I have a few tulips coming up and saw the columbine and peonies were peeking out. Doubt they're doing any growing in this cold--they better wait for warmer weather!
