The Last Trio of Bookworm Blocks...

I don't know what my problem is - probably my typical phase of getting stuck at the tail end of a project - but I had a really hard time getting these last three blocks finished.  Actually, I had a hard time getting any sewing done at all for about a week and a half while I battled a really bad cold that I caught from the girls.  All I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with some Downton Abbey - and I barely even touched my hexies!

But I managed to get my butt in gear as my wealth of scheduled blog posts dried up with nothing else to fill in the void and my self-imposed deadline of a February finish was looming.  Withouth further ado, the last three books in our favorites list include: Put Me In the Zoo by Robert Lopshire, The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss, and The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

My favorite little detail from these three is a little pop of text in the Giving Tree block - family.  Gives me the warm and fuzzies just looking at it.

Yahoo!  The last three Bookworm blocks are completed and now it's off to quilt and bind this sucker!  I found a really cute text print a while back that is black and white (the perfect complement to a rainbow quilt, IMHO) french phrases with their english translations.  So perfect!

I can't wait to share the completed quilt with you all - stay tuned!
