I embroidered the label and passed it over to my friend yesterday as she is flying to Germany on Thursday to see her new Grandson Rafael.
In the meantime I have continued with some 6" String blocks. Again I am piecing the strips onto telephone book sheets ( idea from Bonnie Hunter). Sewing up a storm until I came to trim the last few blocks when I discovered I had used the 'left over" paper, not quite the 6" square after I had cut out the original ones. Fortunately it was only 4 blocks and I was able to rectify the situation! I do enjoy making these blocks. The more contrast the better, I find. I cut lots more strips for this set of blocks so there is more variety and new fabrics to enjoy piecing.
A little break now as I hand quilt another baby quilt for a little boy due very soon in New Zealand.
