I finished the Granny Squares top today so I’m all ready to start my HeartStrings sew along tomorrow.

  • Quilt notes
    • Quilt size is 50 x 68
    • Blocks are 6 inches finished (6.5 with seam allowances)
    • Borders are cut 4.5 inches

The idea for this quilt came from a Craftsy class and as usual, I modified size and setting to suit my needs. You can see more information at this post. (I didn’t watch the class but liked the quilt!)

Thanks for all the well wishes for my latest challenge … I thought maybe the facial swelling had gone down a little today but now I’m not sure but at least it hasn’t gotten worse. I expect the antibiotics to kick in soon and hope to see a definite improvement in the next day or two. I had to run to the post office today and this is one time wearing a mask comes in handy. I didn’t have to see anyone recoil in horror when they look at my face – it’s angry and red and swollen and luckily, hidden under my mask!


  1. I had to go back and read your last message to see what happened. I know how the abscess can hurt, had one during the summer that had to be lanced and given strong antibiotics. Took 6 weeks to heal and was in an uncomfortable spot. Glad to hear you are on the mend.

  2. Wow! This is a great quilt top! I would like to make this, too. Thanks for sharing information about it.
