I have just so much left over from the Murrieta Stars quilt kit – that has really pleased me. I was able to enlarge the quilt, have plenty left over for binding and have enough left for something else. Especially if I have left overs from the second flannel quilt kit.
Strips for binding – extra just in case – precut, sewed together and now packed away with the quilt top.
This much left over!! stacked 2 inches high and most of these are 22- 32 inches long, one piece a light beige is about a half yard.
This is the second quilt kit from flannel. I was checking to see if I could mix the left overs together for a 3rd quilt and if I do it scrappy patchwork it will work just fine. Won’t have as much left over out of these colors though, I checked the directions and the pieces given aren’t as large.
A close up of the colors from this kit.
I had started making some tiny hexies last year at one point from some little leftovers and gradually I have added a flower here and there, this is one of those projects that will take a long time to get enough to do anything with. It might end up being a tiny topper for an end table or something. I ran out of scrappy baskets prepped Friday night and made one of these while I was watching tv and again last night. I need to get more baskets prepped this weekend. (1/2 inch hexies) Linking to Kathy’s Quilts: Slow Sunday Stitching and Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
The last of the prepped baskets finished and added to the project box – I think 48 finished. That means I am about a sixth of the way done! wow, moving on.
A clean table for a change
I had dropped one of my Christmas cactus’s out on the porch as I was getting it settled outside and the pot broke I had to go down to the workshop to find another pot to put it in, as I was walking to the door I passed a pot I had sitting out and thought I saw a snake – nope a lizard all curled up in the pot – perhaps it was cooler there? don’t know – a little dirt was in it so maybe it thought it was a nice spot to take a nap.
A close up – these are common lizards here and harmless – they run across the porch all the time, over rocks, wood piles – there are three different kinds that we see all the time here – cute little things. EDITED: 8:47AM the lizard is out of the pot – LOL – thanks for some of you mentioning it – I never even thought that it might not be able to get out – I guess I was thinking he got in he can get out – the sides of the pot are glazed – he was still in it this morning, I put the pot on it’s side so he can now get out – he was still alive!
