I know Bonnie Hunter's new mystery will be starting soon, but I have so many scrappy projects on the go - I would rather get things finished at this point in the year. Would truly like no 'roll-over' UFOs. So I started putting together my lozenges blocks into rows. They went into twosies, then foursies - really time to just get this one wrapped up.
The Temecula Quilt Co. 'Little Letters' is all coming together out of that scrap basket too - background/sashing is left overs from another quilt. Since these are quick little blocks, I usually wait for two to come out and then to make them up together. The next two I think I need to start putting the row sashings on - then when the last row is done this can be quickly finished up.
And since the 4 (yes 4) scrap projects are not emptying that scrap basket - someone had to mention the OMG (oh my gosh) quilt and using 1.5" bits instead of the 1". I have a LOT of 1.5" strips (or very ravelly 2" strips) and also using my pre-cut barrels which are overflowing. So a start on this - half of the setting blocks were quickly done in a day.
Yup, dumped that barrel of 1.5" squares to make up the little 4-patch units needed. Got all I needed out of this barrel and it still is rather full. The setting corners will come from another barrel. And the shoe fly units will come out of that blasted basket, too.
Don't forget that the Black Cat Crossing Hop is still running this week:
