after some thought, i could see i wouldn't be able to make
the quilt the way i wanted to
and chose this format instead...
King sized and with larger blocks to bring the width to 99".
keeping to the diamond pattern i have gone ahead
and sewn two blue logs on to these.
this next photo
shows my catch-up sewing
for this afternoon and possibly
for now anyway i will be
sitting here at the computer
sewing while watching
my favourite people
