Blocks from a friend

In January, Rhonda sent me these beautiful paper-pieced blocks. I tried putting all 4 blocks into a wall hanging that turned out to ugly to take a picture of. So I ripped that out. And I looked at the blocks and looked at the blocks. Then I forgot about the blocks. Finally I looked at the blocks again (found when cleaning up the sewing area) and then it hit me. DUH!! Not a tall skinny but a short fat. ;)

And the final results. I added the green border so they all tied together.

I used unbleached muslin for the backing. Years ago a quilting buddy told me that my quilting was suppose to show, my quilting isn't that great so I usually try to hide it. However, this time I was brave bold.

Thanks, Rhonda!

Have a quilt-y day!

Sometimes it's hard to know what to do with gift blocks, but you did a nice job with that.
