Alright 2 blocks done and up on the design wall. Stood back admired them...well shoot, I didn't have the perfect star block, do you see my mistake? Those 2.5" squares were not big enough to make the star points correct. But, hmmm, I want to use what's cut and get on with it. So I did, I left it the way it was. And in the end it worked out OK, not perfect but OK. This will be a donation quilt, it will still keep someone warm and wrapped in a quilty hug.
Four blocks were done on Thursday. Friday I had an adventure with three friends. We went to check out a craft sale an hour north of me to see if I might want to vend at it next year. I took a few samples with me, table runners, snowmen and children's sweaters. The gals in charge loved them and wished I could have been there this year. Yeah me too. It was in her home, she clears out a lot of furniture and sets up several crafter's wares in all the rooms on the main floor. Very nicely arranged. She has some table runners there, but mine were different enough, she had no fabric snowmen and no children's sweaters. She wants me to bring stuff next year, so I left really stoked!!
And we three friends had lunch out and went to another craft sale before heading home. A great day was had. So after all that I managed to sew a bunch more blocks and finished up more today and was able to get them sewn together. I am glad I decided to stagger them and cut a couple blocks in half to fill in the top and bottom of each column. So far it is all from the scrap bins!! Next I will plan a border, which most of it will be from scraps.
I wrote the draft for this post last night before going to bed. And this is what we woke up to this morning-last we knew we were only to get an inch or less. There is 3 inches for sure and man the trees are thick this morning, it is still snowing. But in MN this is normal so no bigee. This is the first measurable for the season.
