Air travel and airport layovers seem to be my best friend when it comes to blocks of time dedicated to stitching. I was able to put together 3 more 7 Sisters blocks during my recent sailing trip. I realize now why I have not seen very many full size quilts with this block as it is very labor intensive or I am just super slow! Next came the BCS football bowls. I love college football and can watch it for hours, even if I don’t have a “dog in the fight!” I was able to assemble 7 more blocks over the weekend while watching football.
My pile went from this………..
Here they are spread out in rows. Not the way they will be at the end as I am still playing with the setting. I have auditioned several background fabrics since I do not have enough of the red fabric to use to set the blocks.
And a close up……………
Only 8 more blocks to assemble. My goal is to assemble 2 blocks per day. Pretty challenging with my hectic schedule this week. We will see.
I see new projects in my very near future along with binding two quilts that have been staring at me forlornly.
Have a Happy New Year filled with many blessings.
