|The view from my porch yesterday. It was a glorious day, warm with a nice breeze, and I stayed put out there for hours, sometimes at the cast iron cafe table, but more often lying down on one of the wicker loveseats!|
Then, when the sun went down, I moved down to the sewing room and got to work. I've been working on blocks for my guild's Comfort Quilts program - they are quite easy and addicting to make.
I'm also finding these strippy flippy scrappy happy blocks quite addicting, too! I think I'll finish this row and then add one more full column. After that, I'm thinking a thin, orange inner border and a scrappy piano keys border.
Look at all the violets that have arrived in the mail from my Block Lotto winnings!
And finally, I never jumped on the Granny Square Quilt Block wagon, but I've been wanting to try one ever since I first saw them. Of course, I didn't want to have to cut all those individual squares, so this was my first attempt, playing around with sewing strips together and subcutting. I still need to tweak my process, but I think there is a Granny Square quilt in my future.
Oh, Scrap! and Monday Making.
