I am really excited with all the progress I've made today. I got all the four patch units done for the mystery and got a few of the blue and light colored partial blocks done. I got enough done to get one of each of the two blocks done. EXCITING!
I think this is going to be a nice quilt when it is all finished. It is my leader/ender project. Movement is slow as I only get a few done each day. I just had to stop and see what they would look like. I think it would look nice as a controlled color quilt. I just am trying not to buy fabric right now and use this boatload of scraps I have. I looked in the 2-1/2" square shoe box because I had to replace one of the squares on a corner as it was torn from froggin' it, and found I still have several blue squares in there, even after using 180 of them in this quilt top!
I have also been keeping up with the cutting of scraps and keeping them in the shoe boxes. I had to get another set as I ran out!! I am making good use of my sticky notes as well, I just have to remember to turn them over and write on the sticky side so I can see the labels in each box! If it isn't labeled, I know they are 2-1/2" strips. These are separated by color. Sometimes color is hard to determine, so I either take a picture of it and decide from there, or look to see which color first catches my eye. I have separated some jelly rolls into several different color boxes.
I need to get busy with the wedding ring, I
have been busy cutting the arcs, getting bored with it, so now it's
time to sew a while. I have found when I get tired of doing one thing,
to move on to something else and come back. I ALWAYS make mistakes if I
don't! Talk tomorrow. Hope your day is brilliant and enjoyable. Don't blink with those babies, tomorrow they will be gone and you will be looking after grandchildren! Love those grandbabies!!!!!!!
