An Entire Flock of Aunts
I think I had posted earlier than I needed a total of ten pieced blocks for The Aunts' Quilt. When I got the tenth one finished, I felt this sense of accomplishment. Until I looked at the pattern cover. And saw that, in fact, I needed a dozen pieced blocks.
I had the feeling that I had used up all of the best fabric combinations and that the very last aunt would turn out to be Aunt Gertrude. You know, the aunt with the big wart on her chin and clothes that carry the odor of mothballs?
Again, I was mistaken. She's so cute, I'm calling her Gertie. She fits in just fine. So I'm not even going to tell you which one she is!
I'm more than ready to begin the appliqué blocks. But I'm going to need a fair amount of background fabric before I can start. Some of us have scheduled an outing to Burkholder's for just this purpose!
