Row x Row and other updates.


It's been a busy time, our youngest son had an accident at work a couple of months ago that has been an ongoing concern, a glass broke in his hand resulting in nerve damage and microsurgery. The hand is finally starting to function but is still numb, but the prognosis is excellent with a full recovery expected.

Finished J's row, of the row x row quilt in time for the hand along at the group meeting last week.
The current row is 9 Patch, simple really, but as this row is for B, who just happened to mention that she really doesn't like pieced patchwork, the designs are too regimented, and all that matching up of points and seams curdles her custard, had to do a bit of a fast rethink.
Can't say too much, but part of the design is the occasional 2" 9 patch block included in an overall design, but I can truthfully tell you that working out the measurements for a 2" 9 patch is a bit much for the maths challenged. However the blocks are going together rather well and this row should be finished easily, giving me more time to go on with the Noah's Ark stitchery.
