When I took the class, I was planning to make one more quilt - this one was just practice. I hope my skills have improved since 1994, because I've certainly made quite a few more since then!
This week was one of those times I just ignored the history and tried to make a pretty block.
Just before I started cutting the Cats and Mice block with a different set of fabrics, I changed directions. I wanted to use the pretty lemon striped fabric again and these large triangles may be my best opportunity. There are only seven more blocks in the series. My setting requires an additional three after those, but I don't know yet which ones they will be. I spent a lot of my morning looking at fabrics and photos and contemplating the family stories I still have to tell - there are a lot of decisions to go. Time to use the lemons and get one decision out of the way!
