Ocean Waves Revisited



Last year, about this time I started another insane project for piecing. You know about a month after I started doing a king sized Cathedral Windows by hand. *Snicker-Snicker* Any how I was "supposed to be" cleaning up the fabric mess to start getting ready for the party Sunday, anyhow one of my project boxes fell while I was putting something else away and a million hsts came flying out of the open box for Ocean Waves. SO what's a gal to do but finsh making the 12" blocks for the main part of the quilt- right? So I know have 49 blocks pieced, leaving me 29 more 6" blocks to make and I can get this pretty together to quilt. I know originally I said I was going to do 8x 8 on the block layout but then I'd have to send it out to be quilted :( But if I use 6" blocks on the side and bottom it will be 90" which is a size I can quilt myself -YEAH!!!! But I am cleaning up the mess and will finish with the fabric clean up after dinner.......
