An Empty Tub & A Winner
Not an interesting photo - but it makes me happy. With the last snow-in, I decided that I would tackle that tub of baggies and see what was there.
Lots of HSTs - some sewn and some not - none trimmed. So to work.
Here they are. A container of 2.5" HSTs that I think I will use with a Sweet16 project. A container of 3.5" HSTs with some 4-patches for another project. And the ones 'down under' haven't been trimmed yet, but they are going to be used together with another project. I have three quilts semi kitted up for some quick play.
And I found this in another baggy - a few bits of my Morris Apprentice - thought that was all gone - with some other bits. After sorting thru 3 boxes and 3 large bags of scraps plus the HST trimming, I thought I needed to play for the afternoon.
A few small log cabin blocks - pulled some old left over bindings for sashing and border. It is sandwiched and ready for quilting - the batting was even two small pieces that I stitched together to use up. An afternoon of play.
It was so lovely to see all the 'Let's Book It' link ups and I do hope that by having the photos up with links brought more visitors to you. Our first winner for 2015 is lucky #13 - Deb@A Simple Life Quilts. I will be in contact for mailing information so these can head right out.
We are in for another snow storm, so I may just get a start on February's 'Let's Book It' project.
