I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
I worked on this one Tuesday and Wednesday. It is the extra project for our Moda class this month, Aneela Hoey's "Little Apples". Well, technically it is a variation on our Moda extra project. The original was larger (51" x 59-1/2"), used a whole layer cake, and didn't have a border. I had half of a layer cake left over from a previous project and decided to use it (This one turned out to be 43" x 51-1/2"). I was planning to put the border on the whole time, but it really looked busy without it. I think adding the border helped. It isn't beautiful or anything, but I think it would make a good "dragging around blanket" as my dad call them. Plus, since I wasn't going to do all the blocks for this month, I thought maybe I should at least do the extra project.
