our quilt is taking shape

well, it doesn't seem like that long ago that we were just picking out our material for jerry's quilt, but when we came up to see evelyn -- she already had some blocks about ready to sew together. she said she always does a practice block to make sure that she can do the block, but then she moves on to the actual sewing of blocks.

here's what out quilt blocks will look like. the material that separates the blocks will be the navy blue and that will also be what goes around the edges of the whole quilt, too. the maroon color will be what is used for the backing of the quilt. it was really neat for me to see it pieced together. when we were picking out the material, i "thought" it would look good together like that, but seeing it just made it look that much better.

evelyn told us not to expect it to be done until mid-spring, as she has been in a rag-rug making mood lately. she's made several sets, but wanted to have our material to work on our quilt for those days when her hands were sore from and/or too sore to work on the rag rugs. i have to admit, i can't wait to see it finished!
