Three things to be happy about
(1) a large umbrella
(2) watching "Fixer-Upper" (although by now they're all re-runs!)
(3) a new movie release
I love that little Mickey & Minnie Mouse piece and I started not to get it because it's a one way pattern, sometimes they're tricky to use.
As you can see I bought it anyway!
When my eye landed on this little green print I was immediately reminded of the churn dash blocks, and I wanted it for the borders.
I put it back because the background color isn't really white - but when I went back and picked it up again I knew I better buy it!
I'll use it as the outer border, I think it'll look great on the finished quilt.
Since I need just over 50 more blocks to make the quilt, I grabbed some of the finished ones and sewed them together at random, just to see how they'd look.
Looking good! I won't worry just now about balancing the "grey" area, or sewing all the one-way patterns the same way.
These little 9-patch groups can be flipped around if I need to.
That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later!
