So see the completed quilt? Well when I looked

at the pattern it said cut 2-6 1/2" squares from

the fat quarter, however.....when I looked at the

completed quilt, it had 4 squares -6 1/2" for each


No wonder I am bad when it comes to cutting out quilts. If one reads the instructions for the 2 X 6 1/2 rectangles I count 4

And when I looked at the 2 1/2" squares I counted 14 squares not 9 and 2- 2" squares.

Now am I wrong?

This is extremely frustrating for me when I am reading these patterns.

I hope I'm not goofing here. But when I read the
directions, and then look at the pattern, it just doesn't jive.

On another note, I finished the top of my rocket quilt, basted the whole thing and undid it again as I just didn't like the dark blue back.

That's why this morning I started cutting out
the quilt above.
It's from Fons and Porter Easy Quilts, summer of 08.
I'm going to do it my way and see what happens.

Our puppy that we puppy sit had his first hair cut today.. he looks so cute and is getting so big now than the first time I posted his photo here. At that time he was 4 lbs, now he's 13 lbs and going. He's taller than our westie Wilson but not as strong for sure.
Just a note to my daughter who reads my posts....this isn't about Wilson, it's just a comment.

I hope to do quilting stuff this weekend as it's still very very cold out only a few degrees above zero, too cold to walk more than a few minutes even with dog coats on.

Next week, Tuesday to be exact there is a certain American who needless to say will be out of work. I am so looking forward to watching the American inauguration and seeing hope in the eyes of America. We are all of us in for a hard time economically and maybe we will learn to live more simply.
