I downloaded the pattern for this paper-pieced block an age ago from The Quilters Cache and left it at that. However, with my Mom’s cancer diagnosis and subsequent surgery, I decided to get the ball rolling because, well, you just never know about tomorrow, do you?
There are scores of free (hello!) patterns from which to choose. Set aside plenty of time to troll their archives. You’ll be hooked in no time.
The finished quilt will resemble a Double Wedding Ring, with all the interlocking rings, minus the curves of the DWR. Can I get a ‘thank you, Jesus’?
This past weekend was very pleasant by Texas standards, so I spent most of Sunday parked out on the back patio precutting all the pieces for the blocks. To make a decent sized top, I decided on 25 (gulp) blocks. Needless to say, I’m still cutting.
However, it got me out of the meat locker I call my house (personally I think Himself is trying to turn me into a tubby Popsicle and freeze me to death) and I got a front row seat to watch the hummingbirds fight over their nectar.
