I found these 4 patch flip blocks that I had pieced from my scrap basket a while back. I had planned on making 2 lap quilts but in the end I think I will just make one big quilt. There are a total of 60 blocks that are pieced.
Here are some of them on my design wall. I haven't started sewing them together yet but I do plan on getting this finished up soon.
After playing around with these blocks for a bit, I moved on to my Everlasting Wreaths. I don't have very many of them done and it is a long term project. I only did one block and put it away. One is better than nothing, right?I cleaned some in my sewing room before it got too hot up there. I gathered up so many small scraps and strings that I didn't have room to put them in the crate that I keep them in.
As you can see the crate is full and I have at least this many more to put in there. So how do I get them all to fit? I started a new quilt, that's how!!!!
I've had this idea floating around in my head for a while of a new quilt. I sat down and figured it out in EQ. I can't really show much of it right now but here are part of the string blocks. The quilt will have 2 sizes of string blocks. So in the end, I ended up making about 20 of these string blocks yesterday but I need a couple of hundred!!
I made a couple more basket blocks over the past few days. That brings my total up to 20. I was asked about the pattern and I could not respond because the comment was listed as "no reply" Anyway, the pattern is called "Trick or Treat Baskets" by Blackbird Designs. I'm really enjoying the process of making them.
Then yesterday afternoon, Hunter and I went out to mom's and did this.....
We had lots of fun and I was sooooo tired by the time we got back home. It was a nice day spent playing. My precious little nephew's, Zeph (5) and Gabe (3) we also out there but they had already gotten out of the pool and were over in the dirt playing with mom. :)
I don't think I will get much sewing done over the next few days. This morning I will do more machine quilting and then spend the rest of the day cleaning the house. Hunter is having a birthday party on Saturday and then Sunday after Church we are having a few visitors.
