Monday Making


Remember the baggy of found triangles?  Plans for Bonnie Hunter's fish units (birds for me).  I tested the dark green and the yellow (large floral) and as suspected - melted even with a medium set iron.  They went in the trash.

Handy Andy (or Dove) blocks are being made.  Some in this color setting.

I found a piece of an older Moda line 'Gobble Gobble' by Sandy Gervais to replace the tossed dark and I had a bit of that green leaf (corner stones).  That light brown was that harvest print - you wouldn't know with it chopped up.  That's the only piece of any size 'yardage' (about 8" by wof) left - any of the others were small bits cut down into my barrel system.

These will be the other set of Handy Andy blocks.    Today is finish all blocks and start to set them into  a flimsy.  We are to have another 10 days of rain - so stitching away.  Wish we could send some to the other coast.

Sewingly Yours,

Some things are just too much trouble to mess with.

Raining here again today, too. We are soggy. Wish I could send some to the west coast. Your blocks are looking lovely. You always make beautiful quilts with found and scrap fabric. Kudos! ... :) Pat

Good thing you tested those fabrics before making the blocks. It is frustrating that after more than 6 weeks of almost no rain, it seems we're going to get 6 weeks of daily rain. At least we don't have to contend with 100+ degree temps.

Same thing here on the rain. Your blocks are very pretty, but I don't think I have heard that name before. I need to check that out. I really like that pattern.

Your blocks look great. It's amazing what we can make from our scraps.
