ABC Wednesday--C

 Okay, I admit it. I have not made the B blocks that I sketched last week.

This has been a strange week with lots of transportation issues. Last Wednesday I had to drive 40 miles to pick up my hubby who had blown a head gasket in our PT Cruiser. Saturday he had to come 40 miles to help me with a sudden power draining in my old Honda. We were reduced to coordinating our errands using the old pick-up that is usually reserved for trips to the dump.

Today we picked up the Honda--it was a simple issue with the battery. Hubby got a ride to pick up the Cruiser, and when he had been dropped of and our friend had left, the mechanics discovered that there was still an oil leak from the replaced gasket. The new part will be available tomorrow.

I don't have sketeches for my C blocks. These were made not long before I started in on the ABC--as part of some Bible related blocks that I am working on.

Thsi one is Crown of Thorns.
 And this is Cross and Crown.

the blocks are nice, but your narrative is actually more interesting.

I'm really enjoying your blocks. The most beautiful quilt I own is Irish Crosses.

Lovely quilt blocks. Hope your vehicle situation straightens out, although I must admit I laughed about the to-the-dump pickup being used as backup.

Sounds like there was lots of CONFUSION going on with your vehicles. . . HOPE you are all back to driving normal again. Your quilt blocks are beautiful.

I always love your quilt patterns but I sure hope you and the cars are back to normal.

Isn't it fun to see what people with blogs like to do? I do a little quilting, but haven't been active for a little while... Nice visiting you today!

Very geometrical and abstracted patterns. Reminds me of some old Norwegian patterns.
