Let me start by saying I make no apologies for not posting in a while. It's my blog, and it has to work around my life, not the other way around... But I do apologize for being a bad blogger in a couple of ways.

Has that ever happened to you? Blogging is about connecting, and it has to work both ways. I hope March is a better month for connecting... Both ways!

I asked for advice from my Maritime Modern Quilt Guild mates, and they seemed to approve. This shows how I constructed it:
So there it is, for your viewing pleasure.
Now to quilt that thing...
Linking up to TGIFF and yes, I will go take a look at what others have finished this week. Promise!
