Sample block for tartan quilt top.

When I make up a quilt top from blocks, I like to keep an extra block for myself after the quilt has gone to someone else, as a kind of memento. With the tartan quilt, each piece of fabric was a block on its own, so I decided to make a mini version of the 'bricks' pattern which I used for the quilt top.

I've been going through all the magazines that I've been buying in recent months, sorting out which ones to keep, and marking the pages that have projects I'd like to try. Now that's done, and all the marked projects are written in my "To Do" journal, but the next item that MUST be done is to finish my Tartan Ties CQ block. I just have to embellish the seams; all the threads, buttons, etc. are ready to be sewn on. No More Distractions, Miss Gina!

I love writing lists, trouble is, I never get to the end of them. Great way to remember the quilt
