16 Tons And Whadaya Get?

Today is the first day that I felt up to par after getting my flu shot. I was not sick, but I felt as weak as a kitten. I had no energy to sew at all and took three naps a day. My goal was to have all sixteen of the "A" blocks done today. And I did it! All 16 are sewn and pressed. Wheeeee!



Here is a stack of all 16 blocks. I pressed them as I sewed them. The block is so complex that it takes five minutes to press it.

Now I am ready to start the nine alternate "B" blocks. My dear friend, Nann, has told me they go faster. I sure hope so!

Good that you're feeling better, Vic. Great work on your blocks. Congrats on getting so far. I've decided to make an 8-block quilt (unless I look at it again tomorrow morning and decide to do more). Good sewing on your second set of blocks.

Vic, Glad you are starting to get your energy back. I got my flu shot on Thursday and had to go to bed early! Congrats on getting your Block A done. I am working on them, but I do have my Block B's done and some of the top pieced together. Keep on trucking!!

Sorry you had such a reaction to your flu shot. I got mine in October and I only got a sore arm. : )
I expected Tennessee Ernie Ford to be singing here after I read your title. Now that song will be playing in my mind all evening.
Congrats on getting all 16 made! Wish I could say the same. I've made one.
