Bits of Play Time
I finished up the last four blocks of the Moda Sampler Block Shuffle QAL. I hope to have these into an 'almost' flimsy by the end of the month. I know how I want to set them and then because I had gotten two layer cakes for this and only used one for the blocks - I think I need to make a piano key boarder to use them up. Or maybe I'll get yardage of one of the paisley prints for the border and save that other layer cake.
I spent some time away again with my daughter and the grands and it takes me some time to adjust back into a schedule. Interpret that into I need to recover and rest. I haven't worked on my Wild & Goosey blocks in a bit, so these are something I don't have to think to hard on.
While the bits and pieces were out on the table, I thought I better get the tree block done for Quilt Doodle Designs QAL. I assembled mine differently from Cindy's as I was using up strips and it just worked out this way. I'm just making one block of each (I think) as I am just making a wallhanging instead of the full quilt.
Since the mess is still on the table and I need to lighten that barrel of 1.5" squares, I will play with some little blocks for RSC16. One more day of play with bits should get me back in the groove for something bigger.
ALSO - so excited - my Heritage Stars quilt is over on THE Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts web site! I really need to get this one quilted!!
Stop and enjoy a day of play,
