Block Setting Idea

While looking thru an old magazine this pattern caught my eye.  Been playing with my blue snowball blocks on design wall, did not want to line these in straight rows like good little snowballs.   
 Turned on point makes lots of empty space to fill along edges.  I'm wondering if my little pea-brain can figure how to cut borders similar to (but not exactly like) the magazine photo.  Those blocks are 9inch, my blocks are 12inch.  Do I really need to start this top when I have so much other stuff to do?
    Maybe ;-)  yes.  While it's a fresh idea and a challenge to figure out- now is the time. 
But meanwhile  I really need to work on not cluttering up the quilting frame (and every other flat surface.  That long roll of clear plastic is for covering paper roll pantographs on the frame top.  It was rolled tight so does not want to relax and lay flat.    

I'll need to get shelving moved in so everything has a place.  The fibromyalgia flared last week after I helped DH move the heavy frame plus lifting and moving books, boxes and other stuff.  So frustrating, I can only do a little bit each day or my body gets too sore to move at all.

Ugh, not again so soon- I found Dear Posey "messed up" in her kennel yesterday morning.  "It" was pretty much all over her so I had to bath her again and didn't have a chance to go out and purchase a muzzle.  Thank goodness she did not fight this bath as fiercely as her last.  This morning she is still clean. 
Guess I'll have to feed the dinner meal early from now on.  Posie always seems to be hungry and wants a before bed bowl of food.  She gets real cranky if her tum-tum feels empty.  What's a poodle mom to do?

  1. How great that Posey took her bath better this time! Still I big job, but nice that she's calming down. She does look sweet in the photo. I'm sure that was not the case before the bath;-}

    The on-point snowballs do look much more interesting, too.

  2. Poor Posey - I hope she realizes soon that she's in a safe place and can relax and enjoy life with her new family :) I get cranky too if my tum tum feels empty, LOL!!!!

    That quilt border looks very intimidating to me - love your blocks, but that border would make me run for the hills in FEAR, lol. Of course, I'm very lazy and easily intimidated, so your mileage may vary, LOL.
