COMMA

Comma is finished, but small. With my fat eighth bundle, I was only able to make a few blocks before I ran out of the black. My boss Katja graciously let me have her fat quarters from her bundle and I was off and running again.  It was my "felicity" for the week.



This quilt definitely satisfies my love of  X blocks, as well as + blocks. The best of both worlds I'd say.



The fabrics are very masculine, but fun at the same time. The quilt measures 38 x 51 so I'm thinking that I will set it aside until the yardage comes in. Then the plan is to make more blocks until it's a good size lap or twin.  I'm hoping one of my boys might like it  : )

That's it for this week. Hope you get some sewing time this week end.

Linking up with Friday Felicities
