Re: Caleb's quilt, the learning curve continues

Hi good ladies, I didn't like the 12x12 blocks of solid colour so I cut them into 4 patch blocks mixing the colours up with each block. My learning curve bullets for this quilt are matching the points and squaring up the completed blocks, so far so good ;) No pics yet but will post when I am further along. Take good care.

Good to hear that you are making some progress. Matching points are always a fun challenge. Give us more updates when you can..

Thanks as always for the positive remarks Judy and Lennie ;) I am taking my time to cut the 4 patch squares and set the points. I think Caleb will like it as he spends a lot of time at his grandparent's farm/maple syrup camp. Grandpa no longer has cows but there are lots of cats and ducks. Take care.

I bought a kid print with cows on it this past weekend while on a shop hop. Was planning on using it to make a quilt for my nephew's baby...to arrive in Aug. Now I have to figure out what pattern to make... :think:
