Its been a busy busy week and despite it all I did get quite a bit of sewing done. Below is what is on my design wall, it is my next scrappy top in an attempt to reduce my scraps. My bins of strips are overflowing and although I finished a scrappy top last month the bins just seem to keep multiplying. The pattern is from American Patchwork & Quilting and is called Weaving the Rails. The pattern calls for 120 blocks. I have 48 so I still have a ways to go. I will probably need more than 120 because I intend to make this for my king size bed and 120 blocks makes the quilt 75-1/2" x 80-1/2".
I attended Jody Barrows Square In A Square workshop Saturday with my mom and Ms. Pam. We had a great time. The technique was easy and once you get the hang of it would allow you to make alot of blocks in minimul time. It took me from 9-2 to make the block below. I showed it to my DH when I got back and his comment was is if it took that long to make one block then he doesn't see a quilt in my near future. lol I didn't tell him about all the playing, laughing and cutting up that took place while the block was being made.
I did get one thing finished this week. It is a quilted bath mat for in front of the bath/shower. A simple panel placed on top of a towel and quilted and bound. The towel on the bottom allows it to absorb the water. My husband is trying to claim this one to put in the camper.
Well thats it for me. After while crocidile. Happy quilting
