a quickie post

before I leave for Brooklyn to see you-know-who. Pix later. Meantime, Friday's experiment on the studio wall - I think it might make a nice little 12x12 if I ever need one. OTOH - maybe it should be larger.  We'll see.
On another note - remember when I posted those vintage propeller blocks that I thought were mistakes?  I rearranged one and here is the variation.  Not as interesting, I admit.
Shelley, one of my readers who commented on the block (and found out what it is called  - Propeller) - was so captivated by the block that she used up a pile of half-square triangles she had sitting around and made a quilt top of the pattern.  She hasn't quilted it yet but she did send me a picture. I love it! When I first saw it, I thought it was an antique - but it's a new one - inspired by my blog post. Ya never know...
Ok - off to fight traffic -- will check in later. It is beautiful out -- enjoy your Decoration Day - now called Memorial Day-
weekend (am I showing my age? Yep)
