Here are the two new blocks for my "Then" Quilt. It been a lot of fun learning about the first ladies. I like history, but I don't really seek knowledge just for. This has given me the opportunity to learn and do something I enjoy. Block 2: Lady of the White House Block 3: The Double T (Temperence) They are getting better. OOh, forgot to say I bought a new sewing machine. Hubby says I bought a real one since it's a Singer.

Well, the top is nearly complete. I still need to add the 2 borders. I am planning for a teal 2 inch inner border and a 5 inch out border in that lovely Olive pattern. This thing is huge and was quite the task. I had no idea what I was getting into, but I learn a ton. Patience is not my virtue and patience is the necessity of good matching squares. It's fine though. This one will go to daughter. She has a queen size bed too. She has stated that she really likes it as well. Husband hates the colors. I think its a little too busy for his taste. I was more about the learning, so all is well. More quilting and knitting to come.
