Here's the post where I make apologies, excuses and play catch up...
First off, I'm super-duper sorry for being THREE months late. It's a pet peeve of mine to miss deadlines and I'm terribly sorry to Liz and Camie, who've always been so thoughtful in their 12 Squared contributions. I feel like I've let our little blog down.
Even though my sewing machine hadn't seen the light of day for three months, I've haven't been completely unproductive.
I found out in July that what I thought was the flu was actually twins. Since then, I've learned that growing twins means twice as much
morning all-day sickness, twice as many doctors appointments, and 200% less energy.
Now that the morning sickness is abating, it is time to play catch-up. My goal was to get everyone's squares done this month and I did it!
(It's the little victories in life that make it good, right?)
Camie- I have never done a block like this, but love the concept! I was a little nervous when it came time to trim up the columns. And I'm not going to lie, there may have been a swear word uttered when I thought I'd done it wrong. But, turns out, I had just missed trimming the bottom of the column. I'm hoping it will work for your quilt and that the fabrics are okay. You do such a good job of putting prints together, I don't want to disappoint!
Emily mentioned owls in her block for you, so I thought I'd continue the theme...
Mardie- I love Christmas in October! Your block has reminded me that Chirstmas is just around the corner and maybe it's time to kick my baby-eaten brain into gear! This fabric will look so nice in your home and I can't wait to see how you put it all together. I wish my right-angle sewing skills were up to par... I'm sorry this block isn't more precise. Maybe you can tuck it into a corner. :) Like Camie, it didn't turn out quite big enough; it's about 12 1/4" x 12 1/2". I haven't mailed it off yet, so, if you'd like me to re-do it, I would be happy to, but I might need a little more fabric. Hope it's okay!!
Here's to being on top of the rest of the year... can't wait to start November and December!
