I need an impetus to finish things that no longer interest me. In that vein, I have invented a way to make myself do them! It will clear out about 6 UFOs.
My nephew, well actually he is my cousin. He is the son of my favorite boy cousin and grew up calling me Aunt Glenda. His father and I were very close all of our growing up years.
Terry loved flying. He became a pilot and flew commercial planes rather than passenger planes. He would qualify on bigger and bigger planes, always flying. He went though 3 marriages but never fell out of love with the sky.
I still miss him, he had a heart attack in the Rome airport taking possession of his next flight. Fitting, very fitting. He was where he wanted to be.
His son lives in Colorado now. In July Jason is getting married to Carrie who is a dentist. Together they have 5 kids, all boys!
So I figure I can pull together 5 boy quilts and a wedding quilt for the two of them! Isn't that a lofty goal?
Here is number 1. The blocks are a collection of years of randomly sewing together fabric from the scraps. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I have 50 that aren't girly girly.
Here are 24 blocks together so far. I am probably going to have to make a few more, I think I will need 64. Each section is 4 by 4 or 16. But if I can do 8 by 7 it would be 56. I think 8 by 6 would be too small.
Whew -- All that math!
