B-I-N-G-O . Believe it or not, my Grandma Dilley (the person who taught me how to sew) won a trip to Australia for her and my Grandfather! While playing Bingo, she won the trip & spending money. It was the biggest, grandest adventure they had ever gone on. They had been married about 52 years when they took the trip. They had the time of their lives. They traveled from small town Blaine, Washington and became world travelers. She even made a scrapbook of everything they saw.
The quilt block went together very smoothly…..until the final seam. I have to come clean. I broke my own “three times a charm” rule.
For all you non-quilters, the extra 1/4 inch you can see very clearly on the edges of the block will be taken up when the seam allowance is hidden with borders, once pieced together.
So today, with the fan swirling and the sweet dog snoring near my feet, July’s beautiful block came together.
Isn’t it funny how creating one simple block can make your entire spirit dance?
Love the dance.
