Here are my blocks for the Valentine quilt I plan to make. I've switched out some blocks. The only glaring block that needs to be replaced is the left block on bottom row. The yellow just doesn't fit with the others. So, I'm still one block short.
I'm having difficulty keeping supervisors. The last one I had retired in August of last year. Someone in the department was promoted and I was hoping she'd stay at least a year. However, she became a grandma and is planning to retire the end of April. She and I started work 25+ years ago on the same day! There is no way she can leave without a quilt from me. She liked the four stacked posey quilt I made our previous supervisor so last Thursday I started one for her. I took in three fabrics and she choose this black,grey, dark brown, and white print. I almost cried as gray and black just isn't my favorite colors to work with. I'm adding a little "Tea" to it by framing the blocks in red. I did pick a red with black streaks in it so it would not be too bright. I plan to use black sashing and gray corner stones in an attempt to tone down the red but first I need to frame the last 8 blocks.
