Design Wall Monday 1/26/15


Remember I last was creating all these strattas from 2.5" scrap strips.......



well, they got sub-cut into 2.5" pieced strips............



and they became 16-patches.  I got a total of 40 blocks which is more than I need for this project, but the rest will be used in something else or pieced into the backing.



This is for the Sweet16 Project for Hands2Help (both buttons are on the sidebar).  Now to decide  if I want to go with a simple 4-patch.  I would have to cut those 4.5", but I do have a lot of scraps that need down sizing. 



Or do I want to go with a double 4-patch setting?  2015 is my year of keeping it simple, but I do have a LOT of 2.5" squares to use up.  Which ever I chose, it will be done as a leader/ender project so they will get quickly done up inbetween other projects.



I have all my blocks done for my Let's Book It project and I have them laid out on two table right now - which two furry friends think is just the cat's meow!!  So these need to be sewn into rows/flimsie today (I did take photos so I know the lay out should they be scattered some more).



And we are rowing along!!!!!!!!

I do need to get out for errands and pick up a few staples as we are to be hit with the 'storm of the season'.  I'm sure the fur-kins will want Mom to have enough treats on hand should we be snowed in for the week - oh yeah, she can get food for herself, too.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  11. I LOVE all your scrappy quilts made with scrappy squares.
    I have heard about the terrible snow storm with strong winds coming your way. You and your fur babies will be on my mind. Stay warm and safe.

  17. It looks like you'll have plenty to keep you busy! The simple quilts that you don't have to refer back to a pattern all the time are my favorites. All your project ideas look very good!

  19. Stay warm and dry. That storm sounds like a big nasty one.

  20. Hope you only got the 7", not the 3 feet of snow.

  21. I hope you fared well with the storm. We only got 7 inches. That was so much better than the 2 to 3 feet that was predicted for our area.
    The red and tan blocks for the Ground Cover quilt look great.

  22. Yeah to you for all the scrap busting. And it is very generous of he fur babies to let you get some food for yourself too. I'm glad we didn't get as much snow as they originally predicted but my kids still had school on Tuesday.
