I am so excited to show you this post. I am truly going to try to post more this year.
Last year was not a fun year for me or for that matter anyone. As you know, I lost my mother, then I lost a friend of 42 years. My sweet friend was old enough to be my mother but she and her husband were the first friends we had when we were first married. She was like a grandmother to my sons. Then I lost two very very dear friends from Covid and another two church friends who died of covid. I am not telling you this for you to feel sorry for me but in the grand scheme of things, it is who you love and who you are loved by that makes the world a better place to live in.
So.....enough of that for now.
I made a 12 1/2" log cabin block out of the scraps that I have been cutting up...just for fun. It looks crooked but I measured the blocks and they are fine. I think it is that one fabric after the orange, it creates an illusion.
I also looked at all of the colors I have and I believe I have gone over to the dark side....not as much light. So I thought to myself....I could cut me up some light. Then I thought it would defeat the purpose of the scraps. So I am just going to go willy nilly.
I do think I am going to cut that one last 12 1/2" inch strip out of greys. I have a ton of grey scraps in another bin....yes...another bin...haha. These scraps are much larger. Anyways, I think I am going to have that consistent grey through out the quilt and maybe create some kind of design....won't know till I get the blocks together. I also might make the middle small blocks grey as well.
Plans change, ideas turn over and then there you have it....something totally different than what you intended.
LIFE IS GOOD!!
So Let me show you what I have done.
I showed you in my last post that I purchased the top two compartment boxes from Micheal's. As I was cutting more out, I knew I needed more compartment boxes but this time I went to Walmart and got the boxes that do not have dividers. It would be in my best interest if I did have just plane boxes and no dividers because it will suit future projects. So the top two are completely full to exploding. The next one is half way full but I still have a few things on my ironing board to cut up...not much but enough.
Next you will see the 4 1/2" squares....This box is almost full. Of course, you all know that I used my log Cabin die (that is having issues) and my 4 1/2" die from my 8" Qube set.
Next is the most fun.
