Block number/name: J-4 “Adelaine’s Apron Strings”
Date completed: August 25, 2008
Number of pieces: 7
Notes on block: This is the simplest block we’ve done in quite some time. All the pieces seemed positively huge! And it came together very quickly. It took me about 30-40 minutes (about 1 ½ episodes of My Name is Earl) (I love tv on dvd!). In the original block, Jane Stickle used a stripe very effectively, and so I wanted to do something similar. I don’t have many stripes to choose from in my pile o’ green, but I think this one works pretty well. Maybe I need to go get some more stripey greens? Or maybe I just need an excuse to visit the quilt store?
The Boy has a summer cold. It’s not any fun at all. He’s snotty, coughing, and generally cranky. And his diaper rash is acting up again. Ouch! Thankfully, he’s taking a nap right now. Hopefully that will help refresh him some.
