13.6 LeftoversMarch 9, 2011
I have sent my Strip Twist blocks, so two people should have them within a week. So shortly, I can post pictures of them.
But for now you get to see pictures of my left overs.
The only actual block for which I have plans, is the block on the top right. That’s going in a swap.
I accidentally created the extra blocks when I realized I didn’t cut enough 4.5 squares to go with it.
You know, what, I am LOVING these smaller leftover “quarter blocks”!
Okay, some of the blocks, I had created before, *blue and yellow* but these 2.5 inch things sewn together into cute little 4″ finished blocks … I can see them either as part of the final design or as borders, or as part of the sashing.
Actually it’s the leftovers that I am craving right now more than the actual blocks for the swap.
Another set of leftovers I worked on yesterday was result of the strip twist. I was able to create 7 different 16 square blocks from my original scraps. Not sure where the 7th one will be, but I am seeing colored and white sashings with these blocks as intersections.
Or I could quick create an 8th or 9th block for this guy.
I think I just may have it in me to do one more swap this year, which will be coming up in the fall. We’ll see how I handle and finish the blocks I have already.
That, and realization that the quilt show is only 3 more quilt guild meetings until it starts has got to light a fire under me to start getting my hurricane block hand quilted.
But lately, I’ve been working for these little beauties instead of finishing what I have. It’s all for a good cause, for a some-day quilt.
I do I do I do need more finishes!
