Happy April...Happy April's Fools Day. No jokes to play on you today. I'm sure you're getting at least one or two from your family (especially the kids) and friends (the ones that always give us a chuckle). Today the last day of the weekend and since I didn't win the Mega Million back to work tomorrow! Darn it wish it could have been me. My list of five and the mega number only came up with one...not even enough to win the lowest cash out of $3.00. Oh well my congratulations go out to all the lucky ones.
Today I've got nothing to change on my stash report but I'm getting close. Klunky Korners when finished will be 9 1/2 yards the way I'm calculating it. Those of you who know Bonnie Hunters designs know that she doesn't always calculate yardage so I calculate in square inches rounding up a bit to capture the seams. This is Chunky Churndashes FREE on Bonnie's Quiltville. It was made with several others as part of a swap. I have two borders to figure out one smaller and the other 5" or so. Then I'll be using anything 10 1/2" square for the back. I'll need about 81 squares. If you are trying to use up your stash this is an excellent way.
I'm working today on two other projects as well while the washer and dryer or going. Autumn Rush a design by Myra Mayh is keeping me very busy with HSTs. It's got 320 of them. I've got my Bloc-Loc square up ruler getting a workout squaring up all these 2 1/2" HSTs.
Today is the day or the third block of Lori Smith's Quilt Squares #1 pattern. The pieces are all cut and ready for sewing. I will be introducing blue into this block and bringing in more of the green that I used in the second block. This is the project under the needle this morning.
So here's my report and I am looking ahead for another change in numbers next week. Happy sewing everyone.
