Baby Quilt Block 1

So far 20 of the 49 of these blocks I need for the baby quilt are done.  All the pieces for these blocks are cut out and the others printed, so now it’s solely a matter of stitching them.

Monday was a monster migraine day.  I basically got nothing done and didn’t even look at EQ.  I did start to leaf through the manual but quickly put it down.  I am determined to learn it, although I have a feeling it may be the weekend before I look at it again.  This week is going to be a bit busier than I had anticipated and I know that when I do sit down to start learning the program, I want to be able to dedicate blocks of time to it rather than a hit-and-miss half hour here or there.

Smudge was curled up most of Monday.

As was Lester, but we had this photo from the weekend of him in his usual spot on the windowsill.

  1. That’s a cute block! Hope the migraine goes away and doesn’t come back, they are so debilitating. Looking at the background behind Lester – is that garden part of your building?


  2. Wow, 20 already done! You are quick! I know what you mean about the migraines. Those are the days that you just need to not do anything. Both cats look majestic in these photos.


  3. Grand start on the baby quilt! Big hugs, migraines are nasty beasts! Hope it passes soon, and Smudge & Lester give you a few extra kitty cuddles!
