Shirt Blocks


I managed to finally complete the shirt blocks! I figured out the math last night and looked at what fabric I have from my stash. My plan is to set them on point with a navy blue print. I am hoping to get that done this weekend.
Thank you for the kind words about my husbands ankle. It has been confirmed through xrays it is broke, but the tendons are intact and we think that is a good thing. I have no doubt he will be making a full recovery and we will be out hiking again soon.

Have a lovely weekend.

PS, I received my little quilt but want to wait to show it. Be ready for a Linky party next Friday!

  5. Love the shirt blocks, nicely done, your color placement really makes them sparkle.
    Oh good news about your DH, hope they can set it without surgery and he has a speedy
    recovery. Any idea why it broke, did he land weird or have a calcium deficiency?
    Ask his Dr. about taking some supplements to increase healing time.

    Happy Sewing, my bigtop is coming together :0)...thanks again for that sew along!

  7. I agree! Look wonderful and you pushed onward! One of the best things for a supplement for a broken bone is called (no kidding) Bone Up...it works really well. Health Food Store item usually.

  23. I like the two middle blocks in the top row because of the variation of where you put the lights and darks. Looks like antique quilt blocks.

    I am back working on "Tiptoe Through the Tulips".
