Since we travelled this week, I didn't get a lot of sewing time, but I did manage to make up these:
As they used to say--do not adjust your set! A black block and a white block for the postage stamp quilt! I tried laying out the 16 blocks that I had and decided that I want the quilt to be rectangular and not square, so I need 4 more blocks.
I wasn't planning to make a black block or a white one, because I was afraid that either one would be too dull and would act as a "hole" in the quilt. I was so wrong! These two turned out to be a couple of my favorite ones! There is so much to look at in each of them. I'm really glad that I went for it.
|I swear to you that this block is straight! The photo lies!|
So I still have 2 more blocks to make, which means more sorting, which is frankly the worst part of the whole endeavor. Don't know what color they'll be, but I want to wrap this up by the end of next week, because we move in 3 weeks! No tiny pieces left behind!
I have these two little pieces left over. I couldn't decide if they were black or white, so I left them out of both. Where would you have put them?
In other news, I have finally joined Instagram! I wasn't planning to, but there are some fun things happening over there that I want to participate in, so I took the plunge. Come on over and join me @academicquilter!
Everybody have a wonderful weekend. I have brought out the boxes and am beginning the task of packing up the condo. This is a happy thing, right?
