Today I’ve locked myself away in the quilting room (my own personal sequester) to catch up on Barbara Brackman’s Grandmother’s Choice block of the week and her Dixie Diary block of the month.
First up is week 39 of Grandmother’s Choice – Endless Stairs. An easy block highlighting rank and rights in society and politics. In my Endless Stairs I tried to make them even more endless with a chevron print:

I’m glad I’m going with all hearts. I’m sure I’ll set the blocks with sashing of some sort but at this point I’m very pleased with this little project!
OK, now I’m off to decide on what project to play with now. 🙂
Have a great day, y’all!
