I've got some time home alone this evening, and I KNOW it is the night before the big turkey dinner -- but since I've been gone MOST of November ---I'm aiming for some mindless sewing tonight!
While moving furniture and stuff OUT of the Studio side of the basement I came across THESE blocks. Remember them?? I almost didn't! These are 2.5" X 8.5" crumb pieced strips. 4 strips sewn together makes an 8.5" unfinished block, finishing at 8" in the quilt, however I decide to lay them.
I'm not thinking as far as layouts right now....I just knew that EVERYTHING is blocked off downstairs, but I was able to grab a bunch of scrap paper for piecing on and a box of crumbs for piecing with.
Come to think of it, these blocks ARE reminiscent of the ugly linoleum tiles that were found under the old carpet in my basement! Minus the triangles.....
I'm going to hang around an hour or so. Want to join me? Grab a project and come sew!
You can leave a comment in the comment section below, or leave one in the guest book by clicking the blue guest book button in the left hand side bar, While I can't answer them all ---but I do pick randomly and try to answer questions as I sew!
And yes -- I'm sewing on my new School Bus featherweight! The two of us are getting to known each other and are developing quite the friendship. Her cheddar yellow/orange color makes me happy :c)
