Monday Making

Well, I got right down to business with those gifted cut-offs.  A bit of variations of a 16-patch on point for a basket look.  My guild Summer Inspiration project.  Inspired certainly by those cut-offs, but also by the current quilt/flower show.  I hope it reflects a little of it and some thing just has to go in those very open corners.  Today I want to get all the diagonal rows together and add the small corners.  Then I will play with ideas for those empty spots.

With the finale of the Scrap Dance 'Minuet' mystery, I laid out the units for the one block - I never finished up the units for the second block.  I know this is different from Carole's star as I was playing and playing and playing.  I came to the conclusion that I just don't love this and it needs time to meld while I rethink my choices - or maybe theses units will go into the 'kitchen sink' orphan blocks box.

There are some new buttons on the side bar for new QALs.  Not to be an instigator, but there might be someone out there looking for a NEW.

Since I have moved a few projects into their flimsy stage, I think I need a NEW.  The Moda 'At the Seashore' QAL looks interesting and there are three setting choices for different size quilts.  I like this setting, but will not go with the 'seashore' theme.    Depending on the blocks, I'll do them or replace with something else as they are all 12.5" unfinished blocks.  Of course, going with all scraps because you just can't tame them.

I, also, need to start pulling some fabrics for a project for an up-coming Christmas in July HOP.  The project is all drafted and mathed out and once those fabrics are selected - pedal to the medal.  I have the first day and I like to be ready.

Sewingly Yours,

Sometimes a design just isn't right for you, another reader is going to sash hers, maybe you could do that. It can always go to charity if you just don't like it. Thanks for quilting along!

It's amazing what you managed to come up with using the gifted half square triangles. It looks lively and fun. Thanks for the heads up on the Moda quilt along.

The HSTs sparkle! Thanks for the QAL listing. I seem to find out about them about the time that people post their finishes.
