I've been playing around with ways to jazz up the classic string quilt block.
My first X spanned 5 strips, but it was too big. I like this X better, spanning 3 strips.
I'll make 9 blocks, and use them for a baby quilt, 36" x 36."
It's time to celebrate our son's 27th birthday. We're going out to dinner in this cold weather. It's 6 degrees, just like the day he was born. Then later tonight I'll make a chocolate cake with yellow frosting. It's a family tradition for the birthday person to pick a color for the frosting. Yellow is easy. Some years the request was forest camo. Haha!
(The photo is from Google! Unfortunately his cake won't be as pretty.)
Happy Birthday, David!
