Lots of tiny little squares
This morning I spent a couple of hours helping my four year old son rescue his room from the pit of despair. How do they get a room so messy so quickly? And it doesn't seem to bother them to walk over piles of sharp little objects to get to their beds!
When we finally got the room clean I took the opportunity to take a picture of the postage stamp quilt I made when I was pregnant with Ian. I got most of the squares put together, but not the borders. After I got the borders put on, it sat at my mom's house for about three years waiting for her to hand-quilt it. Last winter she decided there were too many seams and it was way too busy to even notice the hand quilting. So she passed it back to me to be machine quilted. So I finally got it finished...only 4 years after his birth. Not too bad!
Ian calls it his lizard quilt because of the one square with the lizard face on it. The squares finish to 1.5 inches. And there are 2583 of them in the top. Tomorrow I will try and post a picture of the quilt my mom made with my left over squares. (Yes, its waiting for me to quilt it!)
