Grandmother’s Choice – Creativity Amongst the Chaos

I’ve been super duper busy these days with non-quilting stuff but have had a few minutes to work on the latest Grandmother’s Choice blocks.  It can be so rewarding to take those few extra minutes to be creative in the midst of chaos!  And after we take that break, we can carry on with a bit more calm and a bit less stress.

So last week the block to the week was Cats and Mice. Be sure to read Barbara Brackman’s blog for the sad history of the hungry strikes held by women suffragette prisoners.  Here is my Cats and Mice block:

42-Cats-&-MiceThere may not be any cat’s or mice in that background fabric, but I love the owls, squirrels and birds!

The Week 43 block is called Gentlemen’s Fancy.  I got a little fancy with the fans in my Fancy! 🙂

43-Gentleman's-FancyThe Grandmother’s Choice Flickr group continues to show us gorgeous versions of these blocks along with lots of encouragement and fun comments.

Tomorrow is Bee Day and since I have a boat load of fresh blackberries from the garden,  I’m going to bake a blackberry cobbler to share.  I have two recipes – one light and one not.  Which one should I do for the bee ladies?  I’m thinking the “not light” version…

  1. The fabrics are fun, Cookie! I love the way you used the fans. And I sure hope you went for the non-lite version of dessert! Wish I’d have been there to have some!
