Nervous Nelly Blocks

I thought I’d share some of the blocks I worked on last week during the nervous wait while my Dad was in surgery.

It’s a sort of a “Lady of the Lake” inspired block… though I’m still toying with the layout.

I really like the pinwheels that are made at the joining of some of the blocks.

I also think I like the combination of cheerful 30′s prints with the quiet blue-gray center of the block.  The centers are Noteworthy Blue Mist from the new Sweetwater  by Moda.  I’m still trying to decided if I really love it.

I got a lot done last week since my Dad’s surgery ended up lasting a few hours longer than expected.  He had a complication when the doctor discovered that the MCL in my Dad’s right knee was in shreds, thanks to a fall on the bleachers just a week and a half before the surgery.  The doctor was surprised that my Dad had been able to get up and walk away from such a terrible injury.

But we always knew my Dad is a tough guy.

So he got a three for one surgery – two knee replacements and a rebuild on his MCL.

… Depending if I love how this quilt comes together, I’m planning on it for my girl’s bedroom.  Then I might name it something nicer than Nervous Nelly.

  • What a pretty quilt that is going to be. I like the name Nervous Nelly Quilt, and that’s probably what you will think of every time you look at it no matter what name you give it. I have projects like that.

    BTW, and it may just be my computer, but your copyright banner is right in the middle of this article.

  • Kristie:

    Nervous Nelly is cute! The quilt looks adorable. And it will be well loved wherever it lands.
    So glad your dads surgery went well.

  • I love it! keep it the way you have it there!

  • I have that happen quite often also, there is text, etc. in the middle of your posts.
    Glad your dad is on the mend. Knee stuff isn’t fun.
