Please, no more Y-seams for a couple of rows....
No, I really did not send this to Barbara Brackman, the wonderful and much appreciated designer of the current Grandmother's Choice Block of the Week quilt!

It's my own fault, you see. Have you ever heard anyone refer to a delightful diet concoction (example: HealthyChoice icecream) and wonder out loud, "how many servings can I have before this is NOT healthy!?!"
Well, I figured if ONE block of the week quilt was so much fun last year..... where I made this beauty (Barbara Brackman's Civil War block of the week, pictured before I corrected one upside-down block!):
Then making TWO of the Grandmother's Choice quilts would be double the fun! RIGHT???!!
Well, this is true in the case of some of the blocks which are..... well.... which don't involve Y-Seams!!
So far, here are a few of the blocks I've made:
In all seriousness, Ms. Brackman is challenging me in a good way! I love this new BOW and I'm actually enjoying the blocks with Y-Seams too.... When I'm finished with them, it is very satisfying to look at the growing stack! I've already mentally picked the recipients of these two quilts and I think the history behind each of the blocks will be especially meaningful to them. I'm already looking forward to the new block next Saturday!
