Last night I finally got around to making the rest of the blocks for the stack and slash pattern. My first layout was with every block in exactly the same position with all of the seams from block to block matching.
For the next layout I flipped every other block 1/2 turn. I wasn't happy with the distribution of the pink so I swapped a few more squares in different places for layout 3.
The top is all sewn together now and staystitched around the perimeter so ends of seams won't pop before I get around to quilting it. It ended up 54" x 68" so it's a large lap quilt.
I woke up yesterday with a burning migraine. After breakfast I took 3 Advil and about a half hour later, Dad's caregiver called and said Dad needed to go to the Dr. and that I should meet them there. We waited in the exam room almost an hour because they were working us in between other appointments. He was prescribed an antibiotic. After a trip to the pharmacy and then to the assisted living place to drop off the prescription I returned home, almost noon by then. Today my van has to go to the dealer's to fix the heater (only blows out at face level, not at feet) and an oil change and to turn off the low tire light that comes on the first cold day that my car sits outside (every year). It is something to do with the air pressure in the tires. I hope tomorrow is a more productive day.
