Monday Making 6/12/17


Today will be a MINI day.  Working with 1.5" squares and strips for the Puss-in-the-Corner blocks and H blocks.  Working mini blocks means they take a lot more to make a quilt, but what fun and variety.

They are pinned in groups of 10 to make 'counting' easier as well as I work them each 10 at a time - this seems like a comfortable pace for me right now.  I did figure a rough plan with each and will need 370 of the Puss blocks and 460 of the H blocks - a long ways to go.  These are both long term, have fun projects.


And I pulled my shoe box tote of CW skinnies to work on the new Temecula summer mini project.  The 3rd block was just released and I need to catch up with this one.  Since this will be a wallhanging finish, this tote should empty nicely into this piece.

  2. As you know, I love little bitty quilt blocks. Your plan of working in groups of 10 is smart; I shall use that idea. Thanks for linking up with Design Wall Mondays.

  5. I'm just finishing a chain quilt made of 1.5 squares and I have to admit that more than once I thought "Sharon would love this, Sharon is crazy" LOL.

  7. Wow, I love the idea of using tiny blocks but that has not been one of my projects so far. I do want to use more scraps like you do though.
