A Stitch in Time
I really needed some sewing time before I went climbing walls! A good day to start playing with my month's 'Let's Book It' project. Last month I waited till the last minute, but this is a bigger project and I best get to it.
My large tote of solids was pulled and needed a good sorting as I had been tossing pieces from donated bags and projects working on - a mess.
There were a lot of blues and some pieces of the radiant fabrics, so a lot of blue hues.
I multi-tasked today, too. Although not garage sale/barn work today, I did go thru the house to pull and pile up some other things that will head that direction tomorrow. And as long as I was going up and down the stairs, I carried a bit of my long arm frame up and then came down with a sale item.
And I found a lot of pink and pieces of radiant dusty pink, this is a happy pile of blocks. So this will be a two color quilt instead - hues of blue and pink. Some bits of purple, red, and black might creep into this to make up the number of blocks needed, too.
My background base is Kona Oyster - had a left over 2.5 yrd cut on the shelf. I was going to pull a JR (they are a total of 2 3/4 yrds), but I decided to use up that Oyster and I don't mind cutting my own strips.
I loved having the day to get a stitch in time,
