there must me an easier way....

All day I have been playing with this and trying to write the blog.  I wish I knew what I did this time but I was finally able to add a new post.  I have been so frustrated by this.    At any rate, I started playing with the above block last evening.  I think this is the technique that will be done at quilt retreat in August.  I bought that book when I went to Blairsville  (it came with a ruler!)  It has been sitting in a pile since then.

I got the block done but it did not come out right and I could not figure out what I did wrong.  So I started again this morning at dark thirty  I think I figured it out.  I will have to check it out with Peggy.  It makes good use of scraps.  I have a container with strips and I pulled those out as well as leftovers from the last swap.  More to follow!

I need to come over for a tech appt when you retire and we'll get everything set up for you :) Happy mother's day! hope you had a great one. I spent the day with the four fuzzy ones in bed reading. They are great company.
