Monday Making

I found another shoe box tote with some odds and ends in it.  As I'm not in the mood for starting something new and big, this is the perfect little play time mess.  A few strings and strattas that can be used in the scrappy hexie paper pieced blocks.  There aren't too many of these done - made to clean out another string collection in a baggy.  So a few more will get done and this pile cleaned out.

Left over units from last years Bonnie Hunter mystery.  I never completed the mystery - some of the units I used in the aqua/pink star quilt.  By turning those geese units the other way show cases those 9-patches.  Just dipping into the aqua tote to cut out some corners.  There is enough here to make 20 blocks and those will be used in a donation quilt for my guild.

There are a few other odds and ends in that tote, but I will add them to the box with the extras that I plan to use to make a 'kitchen sink' quilt.  These things should clean up quickly, then a little house straightening and the machine put away.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be spent with family.  I will be back Wednesday for the 'Best of 2018'.  Blessings from our home to yours.

Sewingly Yours,
