November 11 … a day to Remember … When I was in high school, in the early ’70’s, we had a modern and radical English teacher and we were introduced to Leonard Cohen. I find it fitting on the day following Cohen’s death, McLeans magazine has a clip of him reciting “In Flander’s Fields.” Click here to listen.
Quilt #11 of Grandma’s fabrics is a simple Irish chain: 9 patches, alternating with plain blocks. The patches are made from 2 ½” squares. I recently took a free-motion class and the instructor was really encouraging us to use a variety of designs in our quilts. So, I think I will attempt to do something different in each block. However, I already know that I’m going to be doing a lot of similar blocks, but I will definitely be trying out a few new designs. Or at least, new to me!
