Just being gone for part of a weekend sometimes can seem to set you back on what you want to accomplish. But I did settle in first thing in the morning to chain piece squares for Tumalo Trails and when I got back from exercise and grocery shopping I got the half square triangles made – hope I get these two big blocks done today and get half square triangles made for the next – I didn’t realize I had enough squares chained for 3 blocks and thought I had them for 2, didn’t realize it until I had laid them on the floor for color placement – I lay out and then stack a certain way to keep them in order for chain piecing again. I chain piece wherever I can.
A couple more mini hexies for Granny’s Gone Crazy were sewed on Sunday night before I went to be – not a lot of progress on this but a little. 46 when I get that last one in place – somehow I do not think this one will ever grow to be a large quilt LOL – it will most likely be a table runner for the dining room table or maybe the coffee table if I really get tired of it – that table is shorter!! Maybe about the same width as the widest part is now and then long enough to fit it – about 40 – 44 inches perhaps. Even at that rate it will be over 500 hexies in it probably.
I keep my William Morris quilting book by my blogging friend from Australia Michele Hill on the coffee table to keep reminding me there is a quilt I want to make in it I am waiting for the new Wm. Morris Moda line of fabric to come out and then I will get some of it and get started – I decided as soon as I saw the fabric advertised on line that it would be the fabric to use for the applique. I have put myself on a list to be notified when it gets to the Fat Quarter Shop! I already found an older Morris line to use for the borders and got that on sale at Hancocks of Paducah a month or so ago. I am linking to Em’s Scrapbag, Love, Laugh,Quilt,
Hope you all had a good weekend and will stay busy this week – I bet we all stay pretty busy.
