Plans and plottings!
HI Y'all!! I have been thinking of what projects are really important to me...that I don't want to leave as a UFO...and my Dear Jane quilt is one of those. I think I can get a row done every month...and that will make sure I have the middle done this year. That leaves the triangle portion for next year!! I added four blocks today, and I am putting them together as a whole, as I go...keeping the end in mind and knowing that I will be tired of it when all the blocks are done, I have elected to join them by rows immediately, and then the rows together when I am done with each row. I see the trip around the world pattern forming in the middle, and I love it!!
Recycling...I bet you recycle containers too!! This is a box from work, sturdy plastic, that syringes come in...dozens of these containers go into the hospital trash each day. I am using some of them for my Barbara Brackman Civil War Blocks. Just the right size!!
Here are all four blocks so far...she will have one block a week on Saturdays...great fun!!
Remember all those nine patches?? I am making sister's choice scrappy blocks from mine!! That is what I decided to go with. I have been cutting...and cutting...and cutting!! I have them all cut out, just need piecing time to get them together!!
Everyone, have a super great week!!
