I'm certainly watching all the Olympic events I can manage to see. Did you see the opening ceremonies? Fantastic! Truly unbelievable. I can't even imagine what went into making that spectacular event. I watched it twice. And I never watch anything twice, or nearly not.
I am so glad to be making my London 2012 quilt. I'm putting rows together but still not quite done making blocks. This is one of my groups of blocks together, above. There will be lots of different fabrics sashing and framing my blocks. I'm starting at the center to build the quilt and working out.
This is my take on the Olympic Rings. I know they are not actual rings but I wanted to make the spirit of the Olympic Rings into something "quilty". And what is more quilty than hexagons? (well, mine are faux hexagons) My husband kind of rolls his eyes at this quilt since he really doesn't "get" the Olympics or my admiration for the queen. However, he even watched the opening ceremonies and didn't complain once. In fact, he was rather gob smacked like the rest of us. Wasn't it fabulous?
