It’s been quite a while where I felt like I have done any sewing at all. Thank goodness for the Scrap Dance Two Step for March!! This mystery quilt run by Carole at https://frommycarolinahome.wordpress.com/2017/03/17/scrap-dance-two-step-march/ got me busy! I put my half square triangles together on Friday afternoon, and finished squaring them all up today. I did have to send Carole an email and ask if I was “counting” properly. I either have extra, or I am short! That quilter’s math on an empty stomach….
It was fun working out of the scrap bins. Most of my fabrics for this project were already “cut to size” when I started, coming from my scrap storage system.
Last weekend my youngest granddaughter turned a year old. I swore I would not be the “plastic toy grandma” but she needed a dump truck and a cell phone to call me! I feel a bit better about the plastic toys because I also gave her a handmade fabric book. I had some ” animal prints” from a panel that were just right. Especially since her mom had posted pictures of a paper book that had been mutilated ! Those pop up books just don’t hold up to the eager fingers of a little one. I had fun putting this together –
Yesterday I got together with another quilter and we laid out our blocks for a couple of senior quilts at church. This is the look mine will take on –
These are 8.5″ squares, and I got about 1/3 of it assembled yesterday during our workshop. It was fun sewing on my little featherweight. I did decide it is time to order that new belt the hubby suggested. I used it on Wednesday at a sit & sew with the Material Girls, and we had a few moments of “hesitation”.
What have you been up to??
