A Test Block



Here is a test block for a swap. It is too big. If I square it up, I will lob off the points. Honestly, I am too lazy to rip it apart. : )

Maybe, I will put a border on it and practice free motion quilting. Yup, that sounds better!

Hounds in the Parade!







Prince Potsie! We own him now. I can firmly say " no more dogs!"Congrats to him and my daughter!

They got to ride in the Parade.

Hey Lori! It's been awhile since I've caught up with you.
It's too bad that the test block is too large, but I'm right with you about being too laze to unsew it all. I'd rather do what you are doing OR add it to an orphan block pile for use in a sampler sometime later on in life. It's much easier to just start over.

I've never participated in a block swap before; enjoy your trial process again!

Lori, I just looked at my blog, and I saw a message from you. WooHoo! I am so glad to see you around. And, I'm very glad to see Miss Elly, too. ;-)

It looks like you have a beautiful new addition to your family. Congratulations on being a grandmother.

I love the block...hope it "measures up (or down)" just right.

Hi Lori,

I just sent you an email not sure if it went threw or not. Your test block is great it would make a great little wall hanging or table topper. I have added your blog to my blog list. Thanks for the great comment on mine.

Oh sweet. I wish I could have seen those puppies prancing down the parade. I dig that block. It's amazing. It's not your average ordinary, just another block type of block. It really pops out and is super pretty. What's it's name.
