I completed 29 One Block Wonder hexagons at my quilt retreat. Today, I got my things unpacked and put away from the adventure, and got the blocks out. They are all pressed and hanging on the design wall. I’m not sure what my end game is going to be with them, a table runner or something larger. If I go larger, then I have a few more to cut and sew.
Be sure to click on the photo for a bigger view…the detail of the blocks shows so much better if you do!
After I got them all ironed and hung, I moved on to the Summer in the Park we started, and finished cutting 3 more strips into blocks. I am looking forward to working with them and getting a look at them on the design wall too. I know I have to make a few more strip sets! I had some kind of trouble cutting these blocks during the retreat and just STOPPED before I ruined a whole lot of fabric! Today, I just zipped right along, and they cut very easily. Who knows…but I think it’s like playing the slots…if you are loosing …it is time to quit! Same goes for quilting, if the seam ripper comes out to often, it is time for a break, and heaven forbid when you make the cuts and they are too SMALL….
It was fun to work through both projects that I started last week. I will probably put both away while I dig into a box of shirts sent by a friend and start her dad’s memory quilt. I promised “after Christmas” and she is on my list at # 1.
