Ryan's Quilt

I finally figured out what to do for my summer quilt. I decided to repeat my son's name several times in the border and then do free piecing for the center blocks. It started out like this:

Then it exploded!
And there are still more.

I'm trying to figure out how to set the blocks together. The words will go in a red border. It will be a while before I get back to them because the Sister's quilt show is this week and I'm super busy. I hope you are all having a great summer!

That's the beauty of improvised piecing - each block is new and exciting and makes you want to do one more!
