  1. It doesn’t matter what your hair looks like, it’s just good to see you!
    Those last blocks look interesting…are they HST the a chunk cut through the middle and reversed? I really like the black & white quilt top blocks. I’ve been hoarding black & white for a while now…might have to finally tackle it.

    1. It’s a sort of weird block… you cut a square on point out from the middle of a layer cake square, then sew in a contrasting square, then cut it like an hst and swap half from the Print+Contrast block with half from the Contrast+Print one. So each layercake pair gives you 2 blocks.

      I’m really loving the black and white too! I think it’s going to be good!

  2. So good to see you again! I love the black and white quilt, it’s really striking! I also really love the wonky star and bar block. That’s really interesting. I googled it but can’t come up with it anywhere.

    I was just going to say I can’t get over how long your hair has gotten!

    1. Thank you! I really love the black and white one too… it’s one of those I’ll be hard-pressed to give away 😀

      The wonky star block was maybe the invention of the gal who requested it? She wrote the tutorial we used, anyway – here’s a link. (Or maybe not. I’m not sure how to link things in comments. I will try.)

      This is the longest my hair has been in… 10 or 12 years maybe? I used to have it down to my bum, then chopped it off into a bob and never looked back. I haven’t had it cut much through the pandemic, so it’s just getting longer and longer. I don’t know what to do with it next. I’m ready for a change, but don’t have a hair stylist right now, so I’m a little wary of turning the reigns over to just anyone. (And honestly, when you have a round face like mine, you can tell them to do whatever they like and they will always default to a bob that hits a little below the chin in some futile attempt to make that round face look longer instead of rounder.)

  3. The black & white is yummy. I love how the red pops.

    Oh, I dig the wonky star/bitty bar block. Those are really cute!

    The new project is cute. It looks fun to make.

    I don’t think I ever remember your hair being so long. It’s fun!

    1. I like the star blocks too.. they were fun to make! It kind of makes me want to make more and put together a bigger version of it, but I really don’t need to start anything new 😀

      This is the longest my hair has been in 10 years! I need to do something with it, but haven’t figured out what. I’m kind of bored of it!

  4. Good to see you. I walk around most of the day looking like I don’t own a brush. So truly I certainly don’t care. Just nice to see you.

    I love the block you are making for your sister quilt. They looks really good.

    See you soon 😁

    1. I’m really happy with the one for my sister.. it’s super simple, but I think it looks really good all put together. I’ve derailed myself with the christmas project, but I’m looking forward to coming back to it.
