With all my 'need to get done' projects finished for the year, I can breath and take focus of what plans need to be made for the New Year. To give my fingers some rest on the Hexie work, I decided I needed to visit a few projects that are in slow progress. One being the Postage Stamp blocks. I made a few more of the blocks using 1.5" squares and there are now nine completed.
Then I made a couple more of the 2.5" sq blocks to round these out to 12 blocks now hanging. Neither of these projects have made much of a dent in the scrap barrels.
Here they are side by side so you can see the difference in the look. These are the most popular quilts in the shop and I think I have just one left. But, these are to be worked on slowly and I am in no rush to re-stock inventory as now is the time to relax a bit.
This is another project sitting around waiting it's turn to be worked on. This is the last display board of pre-cut bits so I will work them up today. These blocks will wait for some larger projects to be finished so I have the scraps of 30's fabrics to add into this mix. Another quilt not to be rushed.
Thank you all for the well wishes on my neck pain - I found that the ThermaCare Heat Wraps are doing a better job than the heating pad; plus I am more mobile. We are into a sudden warm stretch with LOTS of rain and I think all of NYS is on flood alert. Good time to stay inside and sew the day away.
