(3) a gift that is truly a surprise
Do you like my new calendar over on the right? Does it cause the page to load too sloooooow? If so, I can easily remove it, just let me know. It's a cute little add-on but I don't really need it - give me feedback!
Yesterday was the first day of the Die Cut Scrap (Make Later) Along over on the Love Bug site. She's giving a very good overview of what we'll be doing, along with the schedule - check it out!
The original pattern called for a 1-1/4" bottom strip, but when I did the test block I used a 2-1/2" strip by mistake. I realized it didn't make a whit of difference, the bigger size will help make the overall size of the quilt longer (which is what I need), so its a win-win situation.
I just have to decide on the layout, make the bottom border, then piece them together and I'm all set. This really is an easy block to make - you gotta love easy blocks!
And as if I don't have enough to do...
This calls for a strata of 9 different greys for the moons, so while I was out yesterday I picked up some 1/8 yards pieces to add with what I already have. Also, I found this nice piece of Kaufman fabric in my stash that will do nicely for the background.
They look nice together! I'm already behind by four months, so I'll play catch up soon.
That's what I'm up to, have a great Tuesday... sew forth and sew on til later!
