Don't you just love seeing the end of your scraps box? Mine has been full for a long time...until this weekend! Started working on managing all the bits and pieces on Saturday and the final 2" size was done at 11am. Now I really need to find some scrappy designs.
I have been itching to put together the new project Bonnie Hunter introduced us to recently. It doesn't have a name that I heard yet. It involves horizontal string blocks that becomes snowball blocks. This is probably what drove me to manage the scraps.
I like the blocks. I have no idea how to set them or for that matter how many will be needed. I'll just make until the scraps run out...perhaps I should rethink that!
Next up for sewing on Sunday was Sunshine Quilt Guilds monthly BOM. I had to dig real deep to find the 30s fabrics. If there had been one more fabric needed I would have had to take a trip to Rosie's.
I did settle on the three fabrics.
Then I bit off most of Chapter 5, Kanton Kull (aka A Prairie Gathering). I have most of the parts done with only the Shoo-Fly block to finish. The units have to finish with their given size or putting the project together will be tough. My trusty BlocLoc Ruler to the rescue.
I hope this week is excellent for you. I will be stitching during Dancing With The Stars tonight. The ShooFly will be done then off to cutting Chapter 6.
