I finished what I thought were the last two Carolina Chain blocks…only to find that I had TWO too many.
I must have miscounted somewhere.
That’s okay, I don’t mind….this allows me to switch out the least compatible blocks….maybe something is too blendy and disappears, or I have too much repeat of one color or one fabric.
Having extras is a good thing.
I know I’m late writing this this morning – it’s a holiday weekend and I’m on holiday hours, which means that I slept in, took Sadie for a hike, took a shower, enjoyed a big holiday breakfast, sewed a couple blocks, laid them out, took photos..and here I am. And it’s only 10:00am so I’m not THAT far behind on my day!
Blocks laid out, viewed from the top of the stairs.
Ehhhh. it’s fun, it’s cute, it’s okay ---it’s SMALL. At this point it is 54” X 63” If it gets borders it MIGHT reach couch size. Do I want to go bigger? If I add one more row in width and length I can get it to 63” X 72”. But then 63 X 63 would be a fun square size if I just add one row in width. And then add borders.
I love the splash of color and the fact that you have to SEARCH for the chains! Light in one direction, dark in the other.
But then….we can always put them ON POINT!!
What’s a girl to do??
This morning’s foggy hike!

This evening’s blog post may be really late, or non-existent, but we’ll catch you up tomorrow!
Hooray for long holiday weekends!
