Now my SSCS is off on it's long journey ( 3 days before the deadline I'll have you know - lol ) I cast my eyes around my sewing area in search of something to do. Remember those half square triangles from last but one post ?
I have been working on those and decided to make 35 blocks for a 5 by 7 setting. I did not have enough little units for these so have spent quite a bit of time making more. Added some side strips and here are 2 blocks.
Was going great guns when I realised I had mis-calculated and only made 34 blocks. Decided to call it a day and make the last block the next morning before sewing them altogether. However next morning I was checking my blog list and came across this tutorial....What fun this looked - haha
Casting my mind around I remembered a pile of fabrics I had put together when I was unable to sew due to my back injury. These were all fabrics that I loved but would they actually go together ? I think my painkillers were at work when I put these together in a basket as there was quite a lot of clashing - lol ! Oh well - I would either love it or hate it and so off I went.
I have spent a very enjoyable Saturday afternoon making my blocks and have 12 all ready to go. Funny thing - I showed Jason a few together and his very words were " It's a bit busy love " haha - great fun this quilting business.
See you soon xx
