I’m caught up! That is – until the 3rd Wednesday rolls around which is ---ummm---This coming Wednesday!
It’s okay though. I’ve got a method that’s working. If I can cut out and kit up the block parts – I can sew them during QuiltCam time and it’s all good!
These blocks were fun to do –even though one of them looks like it’s 4 blocks put together – which it is.
I love 3” 9 patches – but 3” Shoo Flies? Now THOSE are super duper cute!
The problem is, I’d want to do a whole Queen Sized quilt in little 3” Shoo Flies. Oooooooh! Yes we can kit these up! Maybe – NEXT YEAR!
For this year, I’m all excited over the Spool Blocks…..already I’ve got 19 of them made without having to dedicate any more time to them than simply using them as leaders & enders. Yes – it took a couple hours to kit up 40 of them..but once kitted up ((You can see them in this pencil box below….it’s a NO. BRAINER!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch ---These two blocks are called TIc-Tac-Toe and Chained Star. Oh, I so would love a whole quilt with those Tic-Tac-Toe blocks!
The design wall space behind my door is getting fuller! 46 blocks so far.
My pencil box of spools…happy as can be!
This morning is a “Tulip Fields” workshop from my book String Fling! There should be about 40 of us gathered for this class, it’s going to be a large one. Here is what we will be working on:
It’s going to be a day filled with stringy fun---
Bring on the scraps ---we are ready to play, trade and sew our brains out!
