Yes, You read that right……4 of them…
If you have been a follower for any amount of time or if you were a listener of the podcast (which I have placed on sabbatical) then you are aware of my husband and I’s intermingled family…..a yours, mine and ours sort of situation. Well, somewhere right in the middle of all that is a young lady we took into our home many years ago and love very much. We refer to her as our adopted daughter – aka Perk- even though there were no official papers drawn up (she was a bit old for that). She is now grown with four boys and when we count grands we count her boys in with all the rest and there is a slew of them – 16 at last count including the newest great grand – I told you, a slew! Here is Perk & her family….
Well Perk – yes, there is a story behind that nickname but not one we share with the world – has requested 4 identical but different quilts for her boys room. She wants them to be Spiderman colors but no Spiderman on them. I suggested red, white, and blue because that allowed her to change the boys rooms into Americana theme, Superman, or various other SuperHeros without changing the quilts. I mean I love those boys but figure the odds of me doing this again soon…
Her and I talked and decided on D9P (truth be told, I offered suggestions, she decided)…
Here are some stats:
5×7 layout = 35 blocks each which requires x 4 = 140 blocks @ 11 1/2″:
Each 11 1/2″ block contains a 9-patch cut 4-ways which contained 9-4 1/2″ squares for a total of 1296-4 1/2″ squares:
Each of those needed sashing cut at 1 1/2″:
There is an old saying “These colors don’t run” … well, after a while your eyes will cross and they do start to intermingle…..hehehe
I can’t wait to get them done….but only because I want to see the boys with them…..yeah, right!!!!
Now you know what I am chipping away at, ever so slowly!!
