Satisfaction--I get some

I'm so happy about the quilt blocks I'm making. They're really easy to make, as I can do a lot of sewing before I have to press any seams. I make 2 or 3 blocks at a time. I moved a small cutting mat right next to my left side, and I put my ironing mat next to the sewing machine. I have a calculation of 35 blocks being needed, if I add a nice border.
I went to see that movie "Bourne Ultimatum." Those explosions and gunshots kept me awake, I'll tell you. Well, I really don't want to nap at a movie that I paid admission to see--I can nap for free at home. Superman and car chases--that's about it. Matt Damon is a good actor.
Meanwhile, those quilt puffs keep staring at me from the side, where I shoved them.
Once in a while I bring home one of those cut-down cardboard boxes from the beverage aisle of the supermarket. Handy for parking quilt patches in. And they can be tossed in the recycling bin whenever I don't need them anymore. You know, if I have to bring a cake or some food someplace, I put the pan inside of one of those boxes(lined with a paper towel). Handy.

Hey there, thanks for the positive comment and the book rec! I've never read anything by Tamar Yellin, but the name seems familiar... I'll have to check it out. The quilts are amazing - that's something I've always wanted to learn to do but never had the patience.

I enjoy using those soda boxes, too. They really do seem the best size for holding blocks and assorted cut pieces for assembly *s*

I am waiting for the latest Bourne movie - it doesn't start here til the 30th. Your square blocks are looking good. I made a similar quilt once for my niece and it turned out well.
