Well I didn't really count them!
In this picture I have 4 appliqued down, two blocks basted and 3 centers basted. I am getting smarter as I go, I have 3 needles threaded one each of light, middle or dark thread, so I can use a blending thread when I make the Yo-Yos. Less needle threading! I vote for that.
I also drew it in EQ7 just because it is fun to play in EQ7.
I didn't color each block scrappy but I could. The quilt in the book is about 80 plus blocks but I think I am going to do 36. I have 32 background blocks sewn, so I only have to sew four more. What color I will use for the border will all depend on how it looks once I get it together.
The other playing I did in EQ7 is for my daughter's quilt, she wants another Irish Chain quilt. I made her a black and red one when she was 15. Now she wants black red and gray. I haven't started it yet, but we have the fabric picked out and that is a good start.
I also worked on my handouts for my EQ7 class I'll be teaching on May 14th. I guess I have been busy.

|Yo-Yos on 4.11.11|
Not much to report on this week, so it will be quick and sweet. I have made more of them, I have sewed some down and basted more on. The top two blocks are are stitched down and look great. If I do say so myself. The rest are just basted. I make a few I baste them on, make a few more then stitch them down. I am enjoying the process. I think I just need to slow down at this time in my life.

These blocks look so much better in person. If you think you are seeing cat hair on them you are. My all black cat loves to sit in my lap when I do hand sewing.
