Linsay, after all the experience I've had with my value quilt, I would have thought it would be easy to pick fabrics for this block, but it was a toughy...I hope you like the combos I made...I did try to find some fabrics with text on them.
Today is Mother's Day and I took some time to sit at my machine and make up these blocks...sewing is food for my soul. My 5 year old sent a sweet note home about his mom, and one of the questions is 'what does my mom like to do?'...his answer was 'sew' (and working and doing laundry...funny!!) My 7 year old said he loves the good food I make and the surprise hockey cards I buy him and the cakes I bake... my boys are full of nonsense...and sweetness.
I don't know what is going on with my machine but I think I have to have it serviced. It seems like it's pulling the fabric to one side, and my tension is off and I can't get it fixed. So the blue block is better quality when it comes to sewing, because I made it first and then the machine went wonky... and the green block is a reflection of my ailing machine and wonky stitch tension...my apologies - you don't need to use both of them.
Much love to all of you. It is warm, sunny, and smells like spring here. We are going to go for a hike now along the Ottawa river...
