Y'all . . . do you ever just get caught up in looking through old blog posts . . . of you own??! I don't care if any other person pays attention to the "You might also like:" gadget at the bottom of each of my posts, but sometimes I am totally captivated by them . . . and can follow them for hours, just enjoying (not so) old pics of grandbabies and memories and quilts that
are now UFOs I've completed. It's such fun and is always good for a smile or two! Bunny trails. :)
Today's design wall has the last five blocks...the LAST FIVE BLOCKS...of My Orange Crush! I'm so glad that when I finished piecing each of the center blocks, I went ahead and set them on point and cut out their backs and batting. Except I was short a piece of batting . . . I'm pretty sure I used it in a doll quilt! Whoops!
I finished the pear blossom design I started yesterday . . .
Yay! So yesterday evening I got the last five blocks prepared for quilting (once I'd done some emergency scavenging to find proper batting for the fifth block):
Now to figure out which of the stencils I use for each block! Originally I had thought I'd take these blocks to quilt retreat (in February) as one of my projects, but now I'm hoping/thinking I might be able to take it as my bed quilt! Wouldn't that be something??!
The other half of my snowflake is also on this week's wall. I figure if I do one triangle, every other day, I can have this finished and turned into something (wall hanging? table topper??) before week's end or the next.
What's funny is that this is the only think I'm listing that's actually ON my design wall (window, actually).
And I had to choose which of the GC blocks would be next. The next unfinished one on the list is Block 12: Little Boy's Breeches.
Hmmm, let's see. Templates? Inset seams? Oh yeah, let's do it!
Today is arctic cold and blustery. A good day for staying inside. And sewing. And drinking hot tea. And watching old movies. I think you get the gist of it!
Linking up to the design wall post at Patchwork Times!
Happy Monday . . . happy bunny trails!
