My poor furries are confused. "It started to get warm Mamma, but this morning we went out and there is that dratted white stuff on the ground. And it is falling from the sky. And it is COLD'! How better to spend a day like this than to nap in cozy fur piles on that great mound of pillows, blankets, and quilts.
My commission work is on 'wait' for now as I didn't have any batts big enough. After a browse of the web, I found a great sale on top of an Earth Day discount, and free shipping - I am waiting on a queen size roll of Quilter's Dream Select batt to be delivered to my door.
I thought best to use my wait time to clean up some side projects (and the side table). Being it is the last weekend for RSC15 -purple, I thought the first clean up should be the Itty Bitty blocks - just needed to put all those parts done as leader/enders into the final block format - done.
I saw this block on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville and made a little change to it. I had passed on some strips/strings to my Mom for a project she was working on and I got those cut-off bits back. So I used those for the 1.5" squares, changed the corners to a full 2.5" square, and the center is a 3.5" square. I am using up three different size scrap squares with some left over muslin strips. Can't get any better than that! I will sash with 2.5" muslin and 4-patch (1.5" squares) corner stones.
And a lovely shout out to Bea Lee who is now selling her patterns with Connecting Threads. I had the pleasure of being a pattern tester for Bea and she is currently running several give aways of her patterns to celebrate this wonderful business adventure. So go give her some love - and maybe win one of her patterns (browse back thru her last few posts for each pattern intro and give away).
I'm hoping Friday AND the weekend shows us some love - No more snow!
