The blocks sat in my sewing room for months because I didn't get my sister, brother, or nephew to sign a block until I had figured out a layout based on the number of blocks I had. I wanted our blocks to be all the same colour to stand out in the middle. It ended up around 74-inches square.
A guild mate embroidered my parents' name and wedding date on one of the blocks. And then it's surrounded by our blocks (with our dates of birth indicated). My nephew thought it was funny to do a second block: "The prodigy grandson." It should have read: the spoiled grandson. 😊
Blue wide-backing. How I love not having to piece (and then square up) the backing.
Loopy free motion quilting for a quick finish in time to gift it on Christmas Eve.
