Progress on my Sister's Choice quilt

Hi Everyone!!  I am off today from working at the hospital.  I was supposed to work, but they called at 05:30 and put me on call.  So far, I have not been called in.  So that means there are not many sick patients, and that is a good thing!  The bad thing is, I do not get paid unless I use my PTO hours...but that is OK.  I have enjoyed the day off!!

Above is my progress on my current focus, my Sister's choice quilt.  Scraps, all of it!!  A few of the star points have had to be substitutions, because the strip I was cutting from just was not long enough.  That is the fun of scrapping!!  These are 10 inch finished blocks, so they are big, and will make a good sized quilt soon.  I am making a total of 42 blocks, and plus a pieced border, which is already cut out.  FOCUS!!  It is helping me a lot!!



Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

Julie

Love your Sister's Choice! I wish I'd have made mine more like yours, but Addi is happy with it!
I'm still working on the the Wacky Web blocks. Slow going with the summer here and the kids wanting to swim all the time!

Hi Julie, great to see your Sister's Choice blocks!
I just completed my 42 SC-blocks yesterday-evening!!!!!!!!
They are so much fun to sew! I love the whole proces of them. But I'm sad to say they pur hardly a dent in my scraps...... ;)
So I see a lot more scrappy quilts in the future..... !
Today I hope to sew some SC-blocks together.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Love, Ria.
