Ninety Degrees: A Flimsy
Nonetheless, here's Ninety Degrees in the Shade, completed on a day when it was more than ninety degrees in the shade, Near Philadelphia.
It started as a leader-ender project and, as so often is the case, it insisted on being a "real" project.
You can click on it to see it more closely.
It has no designated recipient at present, so it will remain a flimsy. At some point, I will know that it is the perfect quilt for someone.
I have decided to phase out my Civil War stash, and that thought is what got me started on this project. It has made a dent in said stash. I took the left-over fabrics from this project and cut them into strips; I have begun making string blocks -- one of my summer goals is to make four lap quilts to give to the VA for wheelchair patients. So, with any luck, this first one will be finished within the week.
