Granny Blocks! I got two more done yesterday and another one laid out to do today. It sounds like some of you work a lot during the day on your quilting/sewing. Some days I do a lot more than other days – I rarely sew for more than an hour though before I feel the need to get up and walk around and do something else.
And seeing as I have quite a few blocks already that have red in them I thought I better do one without and then I noticed there is red in the beige print – oh well that is tiny if I do a queen size I will be doing about 80 more or these! or something like that — if I do sashing less. Red just makes a quilt pop though doesn’t it – scrappy quilts need some pop. I do not know what size this will turn out to be – I do have a lot of scraps to go through and some how I do not think the canvas box that I am taking 2 1/2 inch strips out of is going to look that much different – it never does to me in previous experience. You see that little pile of squares in the upper left of this photo – I am remembering to cut whatever that is left over immediately into more scrappy squares to put in the scrap boxes! yeah for me – I will learn to get this organized!
I have managed to get most of one corner finished on the Floral Fantasy – two more flowers to do and all the centers and I can move to the next corner – before you know it the corners will be done and on to the border design. This is kind of draped over a pillow so what doesn’t look even really is, just the way it is laying! I didn’t work on Uncommon Common Bride on Tuesday but I did last night and will take another photo of that one soon.
It was downright chilly yesterday – the wind was strong and only 40 for a high out here. I walked to the mailbox and was glad I had my winter jacket on – it isn’t along walk, short really – but long enough to feel the chill bite. I hope it will be a little warmer today as it will be freezing on Friday I heard in the 30’s – hope it won’t be windy!
Today I will try to do another granny block or two, I like muffins for breakfast so I need to bake some more – I like to make a dozen or two and stick them in the freezer – pop one in the microwave and instant breakfast – I am not that much of a breakfast cooker – I’m lazy in the morning and always have been.
