I was inspired by another blogger to try my hand a random patchwork quilting. My squares are not as nice as hers since mine are basically three rows of squares and rectangles. Her whole square was put together like a puzzle. I’m happy with the results, such as they are. I was able to use a couple of pieces of chenille that were too small for anything else. Here’s the other side.
I finished the ends with white flannel.
I don’t have a pin-up board, so I use the top of my freezer to arrange my fabric squares for the baby quilt. This is the last four rows, but I used the same procedure for the first four rows, too. It is basically alternating light squares and dark squares with an effort to randomly arrange the blues and reds. I used white flannel for the backing. I may look for some light grey flannel to make another one. I really like the collection. I used navy blue and white for the border.
Had a hard time deciding what to fix for dinner tonight. Finally went for tuna casserole, only I didn’t have any mushroom soup, so I made a white sauce and I sautéed an onion in a little butter that I added, too. Even Paul thought it was good. Made garlic bread out of some leftover hamburger buns. Those were good, too. I know. I shouldn’t have eaten any, but sometimes I just can’t resist!
I was unseasonably warm today. It was 50 when I got up and 70 by noon. But it was too windy to enjoy. I did go out and start cleaning out my big flower bed. The hen bit it trying to take over. The daffodils that I brought in the other day are all bloomed out. So pretty!
