I am happy to say that the borders are on the challenge quilt. I would have loved to have done more creatively with this, but I was working with a very limited amount of this line of Mary Engelbreit fabric. I have a black with the cherry print for the binding (just enough), but need to find a backing - maybe a picnic red/white checker board?
This is the small amount of left over cut down into my fabric system. They will warm another project with their charm.
Now I had to find another project to clean out. These blocks are from almost a year ago. Howard Marcus' Collection for a Cause 'Circa 1892' layer cake with some Kona Snow. I need to add the 'flip' corners and all of those bits are cut.
If I can get at least half of the blocks done with their corners today, that will make for a good sewing day.
Bonus blocks - I'm using those cut-offs from the corners to make some bitty hour-glass for another project.
We are dug out and plowed out from our snow storm, so I need to get out for a bit to get some in-town errands done and pick up some staples. Really - just to get out as Cabin Fever is setting in!
