 Just thought you'd like to know.....  
I've been exposed! 
My cover is blown! 
He knows!  Yesterday he came back while I was sewing and stood there visiting with me and then IT HAPPENED!  
He finally asked me who I was making that quilt for!!!
!!!! PANIC !!!  Mind racing!!   
For about two seconds I thought about outright lying. 
But .... since time is running out (see that cute banner up there--there's just days left) and I hadn't come up with a good way to get the top quilted and binding sewn on without him knowing anyway..... I decided to just own up and spill the beans. 
Glad that's over so now I can get on with it and sew openly.

Here's the blocks all set together.....
Once I started setting the blocks together and after almost having all of them done.... I realized I hadn't been paying attention to the blue squares.  They needed to rotate every other block to make the correct pattern using the blue stripe.  So .... after froggin' (a lot) I finally had then sew back together. 
Now I'm working on the borders.  I do have the first one already attached.  There will be another 5 to add yet.
More pics to follow.....


  1. Well you gave it a good try Linda. It's so hard to do secret stuff when they are hanging around all the time LOL. Sorry you had to do so much frog stitching...bummer.


  2. Well, did he like it? I do - it is beautiful!

  3. Yes Christmas is getting close so go to Etsy and hit the $5.00 sale for details go to my blog. Thanks

  4. The quilt is beautiful, Linda! What does Don think about it? It's pretty hard to keep a secret like that from someone you're with all the time.

  5. I really like this quilt and hope Don does too!
