HavenStone AKA Dark and Creepy

I first saw Pat's pattern when she brought it to a Thimbles meeting back when. I knew I had to make this one. It is the first one in her book that I want to make. I will not be making the one on pg 71! I have been collecting my neutrals. Would you believe shortage of white fabric?

At any rate, this past weekend, I started wacking up fabric. I have learned a couple of things. This block really does need good contrast and quarter inch seams are important in this block. that is not new, but I have had to start over because my blocks just don't come out at the proper size or my points don't match. I might have to wait for a tutorial on this one from the Head Thimble.

I will be keeping her busy as I need help on the binding construction for Emily Jane as well. At least I won't be whining about heinous applique. She should be happy about that!

Crazy thing happened yesterday at work. A new employee came up to me and asked me if I was from NY. Long story short-we worked in the same nursing home in NY 13 years ago! And she remembered me. Unfortunately I drew a blank.

I met with Sir Quilt Dude after work yesterday to discuss when I will be able to retire. He will be working on the numbers. Stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed!

Love the start of your quilt. Hope Sir Quilt Dude finds extra savings so you can retire earlier than you thought. It's nearly the weekend; I can see Saturday from here:)
