Rain kept me inside yesterday other than a short walk to the garden to see how things were going. It wasn’t a continuous rain but other than sitting on the porch for awhile reading I was in sewing and reading.
First I finished the one bird block that I had started the other day and now have four done – I’m not sure what my layout will be for the birds but some will be looking at each other beak to beak and other’s won’t be. There might be sashing in between and might not – I’m really not sure – it is a work in progress for sure. And you can see I am changing out fabric for legs as I go as well – needed to jazz it up a little. These blocks are 7.25 square. I think this one might be Bird Brain unless I think of something else.
Next up was Tumalo Trails. This is such an easy pattern for me because I already have a box of precut squares to use – I love it and that I am making the blocks bigger than I normally do too – I like that also – the finished block is 17 inches.
On Bonnie’s pattern you can see there is a sashing in between the blocks with cornerstones – This pattern is in Bonnie’s book “Scraps & Shirttails II”. With the corner stone it forms another nine patch block in the corners.
I have another stack of 10 patchwork ready for the next two blocks.
My hand stitching for Sunday was on the hexies – Granny’s Gone Crazy. When I took this photo I had two left at the top that I wanted to get done with and I planned on doing that last night while watching tv. I am linking to Em’s Scrapbag today and MCM #75 – Cooking Up Quilts and Love, Laugh, Quilt.
Thank you to everyone that order’s Craftsy’s Classes and Supplies from my links – I do appreciate you.
