{Post 1,034} Happy Anniversary to Us! 40/80

My wonderful husband and I celebrate 24 years of marriage today.  Easiest 24 years of my life ;)

I did not get a picture of us (there's one on my phone if you want to stop by to see it).

Here are 40 out of the 80 blocks needed for Ryan's quilt (with the rest well under way):



As I saw and stitched these, my Northern Comfort top was hanging over my quilt frame directly in front of me.  I realized the blocks are identical except that NC has two more strips sewn onto it.  Check it out to compare:


They are also the same size pieces.  They look soooo different!  Which do you like better?  Shirts and muslin or Thimbleberries scraps?

I love them both, but the white space in Ryan's quilt presents lots of quilting potential! ;o)

I love the contrast of Ryan's quilt. It makes a great man's quilt!
