Block Twenty-Eight: Ocean Wave

Ocean Wave Barbara Brackman Grandmother's Choice Fight For Women's RightsThere isn’t a lot that I can say about this block.  Out of all of the blocks we’ve completed so far, I can easily say this one is my least favorite.  It was a super easy block to do, and maybe that has something to do with my apathy.

I may have to break down and rummage through old quilt books and patterns for a substitute, though I’d prefer not do that.  A little voice… er… my own particular form of logic suggests that there’s no way of knowing what Ms. B has in store for us in the next twenty-one weeks and I’d surely hate to duplicate a block.  I think I’ll leave it for now and try not to look at it much (so shut up little voice in my head, okay?).

I’ve finished the Easy Street top, and of course it was misting the day that I had the time to photograph it.  I will, however, get that done this week – pronto.  I’m so ready to get back to work on several other projects that are pending, but that’s not news.  What quilter doesn’t work on multiple projects simultaneously?

Since Easy Street is off the design wall, I put up the Grandmother’s Choice in its place.  Bad news: I’ve scotched the orange fabric, it just wasn’t cooperating as I’d planned.  I’m now in the process of re-working seven blocks that had orange in them.  Not a lot, true, but so many of them have Y-seams, it may take me a bit to wade through the stack.

But not this evening.  The sun is over the yardarm an hour earlier today (Spring Forward – yesss!), so I think, perhaps, that I’ll declare the cocktail hour officially open.
