Closer to Noah


I took the advice of AmyScrapSpot and Jean Belle and added one more round of half-square triangles to the quilt top for cousin Noah. Noah's quilt is one of seven quilts I had hoped to finish by Thanksgiving but now have conceded might not be done until Christmas. I had hoped to deliver the quilts during Thanksgiving, but I'll probably have to mail them because I don't think there's any way they will be done by November 23 now.


Before The New Border

Noah will be a teenager soon, so I'm really glad I added nearly 10 inches more the width AND the length, and the Kona Gray Matter charm squares I previously didn't incorporate into the main body of the top really add some depth and dimension, I think. Thank you, ladies, for confirming what I thought might be a better plan!


I typically like to run humorous blog posts on Fridaysbut I didn't get this top done in time to share it on Thursday. Nevertheless, I did find something cute and humorous to spice up today's blog post. I saw this gorgeous little gem at the park and ride, and, well, golly, why haven't I ever thought about doing this to my car?!?

    1. Thank you, Yanicka! I would like to do another one some day, too, but not for a boy. I'd like to do something similar, but throw in a couple of splashes of pink or purple. :)

  6. A LOT of depth and dimension - it takes the quilt to an amazing new level. It really sparkles now - not in a girly, glittery way, but in a hard, pure, gemlike way - which is very appropriate for a guy quilt! :)
