Meanwhile, back at the ranch

When we last left our heroine she was dithering about possible quilt layouts.

Consensus is, from everyone who has seen the blocks, that there is clear winner.


This is not it. But it was fun to try out.

To be accountable I am linking up for the first! time! evah! with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal July Linkup I want this top DONE by the end of the month.

Linking up as well with TNTN, Sew Fresh Quilts, and My Quilt Infatuation to get some more loving for this one.

Happy making

My friend Gabrielle popped round for a visit this week; it was she who gave me some lots of the fabric for my Jacob’s Ladder quilt. She admired my blocks, talked me down, pointed out the obvious, and encouraged me to keep going. She also brought some sort of very delicious marzipan/almond bar.


These blocks are 58-61 of sixty-four needed! I’m still anxious about the layout but maybe, juuuust maybe, it doesn’t have to be perfect.
