Blue Puss in the Corner

Over the last several years, I've been making the grandchildren new quilts for their beds. This year the oldest two granddaughters are getting their quilts.

The oldest granddaughter's favorite color is blue, did she inherit that from me? I pulled all the blue 2.5" strips from strip box and started making blue 8" finished puss in the corner blocks. I had enough strips for 38 blocks. I'll sort through the blue box for small cuts of fabrics to make the rest of the blocks.

I've displayed a few of the blocks on the display wall. I'll do a better job of arranging the blocks when I actually sew them  together. There will be dark blue 2" finished sashing in between the blocks with light fabric cornerstones.

The first Amaryllis plant has been blooming for a week with both buds opening at the same time. There are 8 lovely flowers to bring some color into the dreary overcast winter days. 

I took the picture in front of the Infinity wallhanging I made 2 years ago. I smile every time I look at this wall quilt.

Here is a link to Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts where you can find the Infinity pattern.
