Three things to be happy about:
(1) leftover Halloween candy
(2) caramel apples
(3) knitting a scarf
Actually I used to knit, long before I discovered quiltmaking!
My PC is having problems, which means time spent with the Geek Squad, so I was more or less unable to sew for a good part of the day.
Fourteen blocks done, lots more to go...
That 2-1/2" Accuquilt die is my friend!
Stacking and cutting four 8-1/2" squares gives me enough white background pieces to make three blocks.
A timesaver for sure.
I'd like to add sashing to the blocks as I get them trimmed, but they're not all coming out the same size if I trim 1/4" from the corners. That naughty quarter-inch seam will getcha every time.
I might just wait til they're all sewn then trim down to the smallest block size. No biggie!
They look great all laid out together, though!
I definitely want to stick with these blocks; maybe I can get most of them done before Thanksgiving!
That's it for now, have a great day, enjoy the sunshine, sew forth and sew on...
