New project

I've been doing a lot of traveling this year.  By the end of the year, I'll be away from home for over 100 days.  The downside is lack of quilting time.

A couple of months ago, my grandson Oden who is 18, asked me to make him a quilt for his bed.  His two specifications were:
1. a quilt with a pattern  
2. a white background.  

Should be easy, right?  I took my time and finally decided on the Folksy Flock quilt pattern from issue 48 of Love Patchwork and Quilting.  The pattern is for a 72" x 80" quilt so I had to do some math and come up with a plan for a double-size bed quilt.  Fun times!

This was my first fabric pull, I ended up adding many more greens because I didn't want all the blocks to look the same.

Here are the "A" blocks.  There are 33 of them but I only laid out 30.

Now, on to the next phase!

May your bobbins always be full,
