I did my one block this morning. Then I figured, why not just finish this thing? So I made two more zigzags and sewed the pieces together. I'm really happy with it - especially when I spent just a bit of time daily to make it. And I used some stash (including some very uglies). I'll take a better photo once I've quilted it.
Now, what block-a-day to tackle next? Still undecided. I did remember this morning that I have the die for the Alex Anderson postage stamp basket:
These are itty bitty blocks - finish at only about 4 inches I think. But it would be great as a scrap quilt. I think I'll make a block in the morning to see how I like it and how long it takes.
This morning I juggled a plumber, a roofer, and another guy while I sewed. Still tweaking the house. But this afternoon I got out - I was invited to join a smaller group of quilters for an afternoon of sewing, sharing, and gabbing. My favorite things to do! What fun! I'm so glad I'm making friends here!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
