I must confess that I didn’t read carefully and cut twice as many red and white half squares as I was supposed to! But better too many than too few, right.

And that is as far as I can go tonight, unfortunately. My eyes are pretty tired, but I really wanted to get something up here. Tomorrow I get to make the paws! Or tracks. Or whatever they are called!
Quilt on!
