Lego quiltm making progress

This is my second lego quilt.  I love doing them in long strips.  I considered doing the 12 inch blocks, but they kinda made me dizzy.  I do love the long thin strips.  I haven't picked a border, need to iron first.  Who's least favorite part of sewing in IRONING, not my favorite thing.  I have been know to pay teenagers to iron my quilts, but I don't have any teenagers who need mad money these days.

Small Finish

Well, its a start.  I haven't posted in so long.  Work, family, grandbaby, dr appts.  We all know the drill.  I hav been able to sew a little. 
I have worked on organizing a little.  I want to get everything in order so I can spend less time cleaning and more time sewing blankets for babies.  I love, love, love, sewing tiny little blankets for sew little ones. 
This is actually a tiny baby washrag crocheted out of 100 percent cotton, American made.  I love American made.  Use it when I can.  Actually its wonderful for babies to hold, and chew on while mommie has the one with the soap.  I love this thread.  Crochet seems to be coming back.
