progress for today
Good afternoon...weird to be posting twice in one day! I have made this much progress on Easy Street...all the corner and side pieces are done, and five of the blocks. Only twenty more blocks to go, and I will be putting this one together!!
But....I get side tracked!! I have tiny pieces, crumbs of cloth really...and I am making scrappy geese with these pieces. Bonnie is making string geese, but these pieces are really too small to be strings, so I am making geese of a different color, so to speak!! With the string borders, each block is nine inches finished.
And the plaids always, always call to me...I have been hoarding every plaid string I can find...and it is time to use them!! So this quilt is coming into being too. Doesn't look like much now, but just wait!! Those plaids will sing when they are done!!!
So...what fabrics are you hoarding?! I challenge to use your favorites!! What are we waiting for??
