Design Wall Monday - 4/13/15
I had to pick up my quilting project - rain and kitties with muddy paws that just seem to find a light color quilt - not good! So I've started to put some of the blocks together for my 'Let's Book It' project from the Nickle book. These go together very quickly as all the sub-units are made, so I may get all the blocks done this week with a goal of a flimsy by next week.
That is - if I can keep this fat cat from thinking my container of units is her personal 'nest'.
These 9-patches were going to be a border for the Snowball/9-Patch quilt, but I didn't like the look. So they are being 'cornered' with some solid scraps (use them right up - gone). I like this look way better.
My SIL is learning to set aside every little smidge from her projects - so I can play with them later. Actually in case there is an 'oops' and we need that little piece. We mathed her latest quilt right to the 'intz' with little waste and the need for real care in that 1/4" seam.
They are now cute little hour glass blocks that will be thought on for a future project.
Now that the sun is out and drying things up - and furries have found a sunny, warm spot for a long nap - I think I will pull that quilt back out and try to get the FMQ done.
