Three things to be happy about:
(1) a good camera
(2) light showers
(3) a morning stretch
It's bright and early... I woke up at around 3:30 am and had a good stretch, then I thought about the Idaho Square Dance blocks, then I got up to sew just one more seam... yadda yadda yadda I haven't been back to bed and I'm up way earlier than I meant to be! Morning stretches are good things though :o)
- never mind the fact that I need to be quilting and binding my WeeBee challenge quilt!
The flimsy has been finished for weeks, it just needs to be quilted - sheesh!
I went ahead and put one Idaho SD block together just to have something to look at while I worked on the pieces and parts.
Then I noticed that in Bonnie's blocks, she uses the same fabric for that long strip on the sides...
... so I put another block together, using the same middle square, just to see what I saw.
Scrappy... or controlled?
The jury is still out, I kinda like both!
There will definitely be sashing included - or even an alternate block - which could affect the way the finished quilt looks anyway.
Either way, I like the block! What a clever use of 1-1/2" strips, Bonnie!
Do you think I could get just two more hours of sleep before I get back up? I'll know in about an hour! Enjoy your day, sew forth and sew on til later!
