last tuesday i forgot to post the 21st square because i had forgotten that it was tuesday. it was one of those weeks where everything decided to happen all around the same time. and for a female, i don’t multitask very well.
this past weekend we went to monterey bay for a mini vacation. (unfortunately, i did end up taking work with me. fortunately, the motel’s internet was so spotty i did only minimal work.) my favorite part of the weekend was that, every morning we would go collecting little rocks and sea shells along the tide pools.
this morning miss e and i walked to the post office to mail off the 20×20 in 20 days quilt.
here’s a sketch of the past 20 days. (click on pictures to view larger images.)

this morning we took another trip to the post office. since miss e is always wanting to help me with my sewing projects i decided to make another 20×20 quilt and have her be involved in it. she helped me pick out the 20 different fabrics and the order that they would be sewn together.
i gave her stickers numbered 1-20 and let her stick them on any fabric her little heart desired. she favored the “coconut” (polka dot) ones.
it’s a quilt block that became a postage stamp in 1978. learned how to piece it together from the quilt show. even had to dust off my algebra skills (i know, ouch!) to recalculate measurements since i was scaling it down to a 2.5 x 2.5.
