These strips are three of the sizes needed for D and E Blocks. I only have the 1 1/4" strips and 1" strips for both of these blocks to piece. As always I'm working hard to conserve fabrics...I don't want to cut into the nice background yardage that remains unless I have to. I'm using the leftovers of the 4 1/2", 2 1/2", and 1 1/2" strips forward. I hope to finish the rest of the piecing and start on the strip assembly later tonight. Right now Krates is the name that I plan to use...unless another idea comes forward...
I squeezed in time this morning to trim, prepare binding and sleeve, as well as stitch them in place on the Eagle quilt. I will be mailing this off this morning to Maryland for finishing when I will be visiting later this week. This one will be donated to the Veterans Home near my parents home. Mom and I will be delivering it in early September. Mom and Dad have birthdays and an anniversary coming that I will be there to celebrate.
See lots of other amazing project through the links today at Patchwork Times.
