Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

One More Twin Quilt!

This one is for grandson Hayden!

It's a Crazy Quilt, but I'm doing it with a "pattern."

As you can see, the blocks are printed on muslin.
You just lay the pieces of fabric (face down) on the block, sew the seam, trim it and press. You lay the next piece face down on the previously sewn piece(s) and sew one more seam, trim it and press. Etc. :-)

I've just laid the first 8 blocks onto a piece of blue fabric to help visualize what it might look like with "sashing" between the blocks.

I hope no one expects it by Christmas...
but I'd like to make that a goal.
