This is going to be the center block of my uncle's quilt. I LOVE the way it turned out!!
The picture is my uncle and his three siblings. They went to a family reunion in Colorado and had these old-timey pictures taken. I nearly peed myself when my mom showed them to me. I was HYSTERICALLY laughing. Laughing so much my mom started laughing. My uncle always presented this serious face to the world, few people even knew he had a sense of humor. So to see him, see all of them like this, was just amazingly funny to me. I really like this fabric, I'll be using the same off-white for all the blocks, but I have a complementary one to use for the darks. I'm pretty excited with how it's turning out so far and I only have one block done! Go me!
In other news I have a mermaid confession...tomorrow is book club and I just bought the book yesterday and I'm less than a quarter of the way through it!! It's possible I'll finish it, but I'll feel really bad if I don't! I was too busy finishing up the Vladimir Tod books...don't tell!!
