all the squares are pinned and batted

...I'm working on the rag quilt I'm making for nick's couch. I have I think 9 or 10 flavors of plaid here, all of which I just can't wait to wrap up in. I'm cutting them into 12x10 inch squares and then I'll count how many I have to see how big it'll be
I got a thank you note from you for the pj pants. You told me I should keep a photo album of gifts I've made for people...little do you know. :-) It'd be cool to have physical pictures all in one place though. I think I'm going to keep this blog going though, so I can keep notes on ideas and what worked and what didn't too. Maybe after I give you the quilt, I'll even let you be a writer on here so you can contribute too if you want. :-)
Iron's ready. I'll post pictures.

1. I'm going to keep this blog going even after Christmas, so you can keep up with whatever projects I'm working on (unless they're for you, then I'll keep them hidden :-P). I'll reset the permissions so anyone can see it.
2. I'm going to attempt to make The Boy a Texas flag for Christmas. This is the official description of the flag:
The Texas State Flag: "'The state flag consists of a rectangle with a width to length ratio of two to three containing: (1) a blue vertical stripe one-third the entire length of the flag wide, and two equal horizontal stripes, the upper stripe white, the lower red, each two-thirds the entire length of the flag long; and (2) a white, regular five-pointed star in the center of the blue stripe, oriented so that one point faces upward, and of such a size that the diameter of a circle passing through the five points of the star is equal to three-fourths the width of the blue stripe.'"
I think I want it to be pretty big (not huge, but big enough to hang on his wall). I'm thinking I'll make it 20-by-30 inches. That makes the stripes 20x10, and the star...something that I'll figure out later. :-)

My next project is going to be another secret project (well, secret from the recipient)...I'm going to make Mai a quilt for her high school graduation in June. I've already started collecting black and white fabrics, and I'll be looking for a few deep red ones to throw in as well. I'm thinking I'll just do basic squares...maybe 3x3s...with a couple of borders similar to the ones on your quilt, then red binding.
Also, I sort of want to try doing a quilt sort of like those puzzles you see where the whole picture is made up of hundreds of little pictures...I wonder how I could do that, and what I could use as pictures. Hmmmm...
