Monday Making 1/19/16



Monday I caught up on the Moda Shuffle Sampler blocks (button on side bar).  I still haven't thought of how I want to set these yet. - better hurry up as this one is coming to a close in a few weeks.


I started on the second half of my Dottie blocks for my Let's Book It project.  This is a free JR pattern on the Moda Bake Shop site.  Strip sets sewn and then sub-cuts made.  These are next to the machine to just chain the block units now.  I'm hoping to have this at the flimsy stage by this weekend.

Today is the chaining of those blocks while I help my SIL lay out a setting for her newest quilt - she finished up all the blocks Monday.  I am finally getting her to dive into her left overs and scraps to clear some things out.  She has a gorgeous new JR that she is dieing to play with and I won't let her until this one is done.

There are a lot of NEW buttons on the side bar that might interest you.
Hands2Help is starting up and I hope you participate in another year.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
