The two below are 6" blocks - I'm not in the studio, otherwise I would tell you what they are called. It's a real challenge for me to work with such small blocks! My hands are by no means "delicate" thanks to my Lithuanian heritage, and they don't work as well as they used to. But I think overall, the blocks turned out well. I have to make three more of these in 9" blocks - I think I'll use my new flying geese ruler and see if that makes it easier.
I find it odd that when I photograph some of the blocks they look as though the seams don't quite meet on the edges - but I assure you they do!
Mr. Squash and I are off this entire week - woo-hoo!! I plan to really put a dent in the making of the rest of the blocks for this quilt! Tomorrow we're heading into Seattle to a store called Rejuvenation to pick out the lights for the kitchen at the Squash House. I got a catalog from them some time ago and found they not only have a great selection of lighting, but you can have any combination of shade, pendant, finish, etc! And their prices are quite reasonable as well! They also carry knobs, register covers and many other items for the home.
This morning brought more melted snow and welcome rain! We still see 10 foot piles of snow all over town, and a lot of it hasn't melted from sidewalks, roofs and streets, but there has definitely been progress!
