156 quilt blocks on the floor...
156 blocks, ya take one down and pass it around, 155 blocks on the floor!
Shew! I just finished all of my blocks for a king-sized yellow brick road. The blocks are very simple, but the quantity is vast. Then I got to thinking... "a dangerous pastime, I know." (ala Beauty and the Beast.) And of course, this doesn't occur to me until I am finished with the blocks. But I told DH that I wanted to downsize from a king-sized bed to a queen the next time we purchase a mattress. I hate groping around in the middle of the night... let me rephrase that... I hate not being able to reach him when I need...er... when I want... uh... the bed is just too big! I feel like we need seperate time zones! And when both of us are relatively small people, it just doesn't seem to be an efficient use of space. And I am nothing if not practical. Back to the quilt blocks. Figure I can make the queen-size quilt and use the extra blocks as Sarah does for a baby quilt or two. Do you think the fabric is too bright and not baby-ish enough?
