It's Block Day
Wednesday is Block Making Day! I am following a number of QALs that have their blocks released on Wednesday and I love that I can put the old machine thru her paces; as well as work a variety of techniques.
The hexie flower baskets are all done and it is time to put them into their on-point setting corners. I have each matched up with some fun fabrics - a mix of American Jane and Feed Sacks.
The Geese will fly for Temecula Quilt Co, some more plaid patches, the newest Solstice block and then I had my arm twisted. Blockheads with Moda's Cutting Table - I mentioned I needed to work more in taming those CW tubs.
The new baggy for storing selvedges is getting stuffed pretty quickly. Some are from yardage, but most ore from FQs that I am trying to use up. And I am excited to see that thread cone getting down to 'skinny'!! Remember, I keep a thread inventory instead of a stash use report. Being a scrap user, thread tells me how much fabric has been used up.
It's a cold, blustery day - a good day to stitch away,
