Quilts From Winter 2019: Part Two of Three
This pretty quilt has the unfortunate name of The Pneumonia Quilt. When I was sick, Himself pointed out -- once again -- that I don't cough as much when I sew. I had recently reorganized and purged my stash and come across a package of fat somethings (no longer remember if they were quarters or eighths) and since I'm a sucker for a basket block, I aimlessly began. When I put them up on the wall, I was pleasantly surprised to find there were three different ways to arrange a group of four.

I ordered the border from the same line; it was hard to find and it came all the way from Utah (Hi, Janet!). Got here pretty quickly, too.
