Block #5 For Kristi

Block #5 For Kristi H

This block is dedicated to Kristi H. Kristi has somehow managed to accumulate more quilts than anyone else. She has a grand total of 3 quilts from me. Well… she WILL have 3 quilts by the end of this week as I am binding one for her now. I only have 3 of my own quilts!

For Kristi’s first child, I made a small “twister” quilt. I was pretty excited about it and it went together super quick. I didn’t tell her about it or show it to her before I finished it. I didn’t discuss fabrics, I didn’t even match up to the stuff on her baby registry. A few days before I finished it we were chatting and she was lamenting on how she hated pink. She was having a girl and the fact that everything was Pepto Bismal pink annoyed her. You should have seen the look on my face! At the time of this conversation, I was putting the binding on the pinkest quilt known to man.

Thoughts On This Project

Reality has struck. I am back to working 5 days a week, 8 hours a day and trying to make these blocks. Planning and picking out fabrics ahead of time is becoming crucial and I am not really pleased with my color choices on this block. Even though its not my favorite – with 365 to do – it still counts. And I don’t feel bad about Kristi getting stuck with a block that I’m not 100% enamored with. She already has three quilts, she knows she’s special.
