I only have a minute but wanted to let everyone that has been asking about my quilt "Wedded Bliss."
I am totally in love with this pattern.
It was originally designed by Darlene of Quilting Daze, as Between Friends.
She had the original pattern published as a free one on her blog.
I don't think the link is working any longer.
I have my downloaded copy of the pattern and I changed it up a bit with how I did my borders though. I suspect she would send you her pattern if you ask or
if she gives you permission I am happy to share it with you too.
I used it as a heads and tails project and had all the pieced blocks made pretty quickly.
Do you know about heads and tails?
Here is what I did.
I had a lot of these 2.5" squares of blue and green and would sew a pair every time I was finished sewing on my "main" quilt project.
So at the "tail" of my main project I would sew a pair, clip the thread and
take the main project to the ironing board.
When I was ready to begin the next step in my main project my "tail" pair
would become the "head" pair.
When I finished the next step in my main project I would grab another set of squares and use them as the tail end of the strip.
This accomplishes two things.
It finishes a second project with very little effort on your part and it also saves on thread!.
Some people use a thread bunny but again you are wasting thread that
you could be using to sew two tails together and get a second project done, kind of for free!!
You can use anything as a heads and tails project.
Remember those paper dolls?
I totally cut up a bunch and have used them as heads and tails.
Want to make a scrap vomit quilt? A GREAT Heads and Tails project.

How about an X and + quilt? Totally could do this as a Heads and Tails.

Anything you can cut up ahead of time you can use.
I hope you will send off a note to Darlene if you are interested in a copy of her pattern.
Please let me know if you make one of these wonderful quilts too.
Have a happy day!!
