All is well here on Quilt Lane, I just took a 'media' break to spend a little more time with my son and Mom. Also, doing more cleaning up of UFOs and PIGS. I had all these blocks made along with a lot of strings pieced on old phone book paper. I had half the top together, so decided to clear that project out. I used the rest of the strings to add the outside border - one extra 'yellow' block and one extra strip of strings. To the trash they went.
I found another shoe box tote full of blocks! I thought I cleared these out for our guild swap meeting. I get very addicted to making tons of blocks, especially if it is a block I really enjoy making (and that they are fast).
There is about 30 of these made and a baggy of cut CW scraps. So I will grow this one. How many blocks get made will depend on how much of the linen I have left - luckily that was still tucked in my 'lites' tote.
Just a couple of these, but a baggy stuffed with 1.5" squares. I'm using this as my leader/ender while making blocks.
There is a pile of about 100 of these tiny floating stars along with a baggy of pre-cuts for the project.
Twenty of these that I think I started for one of Bonny Hunter's mysteries - that I obviously did not stick with. I'm sure I can find another use and get them into a quilt rather than hiding in a tote.
And oh crap - more strings. I hate making string blocks to be honest. I might just pass these on to someone - just the setting corners need to be added with enough blocks for a small quilt.
A reminder that the Hands2Help Challenge has started. SARAH has been organizing this for 10 years now. Now is sign up time (March 22-28), but if you miss it you still can participate with donations. Please visit THIS LINK with the charities suggested (or your own) and a calendar list of activities that will be leading up to finalization.
We are all house-bound with plenty of time and fabric. There is such a need all over at this time. I know quilters/sewers around the world are making face masks - you can't find elastic any where!! Shop your stash - a lot of companies are now announcing that they are closing their warehouses - yes, even the fabric and thread warehouses. Share with a friend if they have a need. We quilters are a work force to be reckoned with.
Stay safe, be well, please take care of yourselves. I'm a hugger, and social distancing has had a huge impact on me - so I give you all a virtual HUG!
