Yesterday we went out for Sunday lunch with Martin's family at the Feathers Hotel. We had a wonderful afternoon, and of course ate way too much. The kids were all 'chocolated' out when we got home, and I was dying to get into the sewing room and work on my repro blocks some more.
In the picture, you can see where I got to - it was about midnight and I couldn't keep my eyes open a moment longer, even though I really wanted to make sashings for more blocks, I just couldn't trust myself to play with the cutter. (Pay no attention to the morning rays of sunshine streaking across the floor)
Don't the sashing strips change the look of the blocks entirely? This quilt is going to go together quickly, leader and ender project or not. It should be a good scrap-buster too, even though we all know that it doesn't seem to matter how many scrap quilts you make, they just don't seem to make a dent.
Today I MUST write some directions that have been kicking around in my head. They're required for next weekend, and though I've known I needed to do them for a LONG time, I have writers block for some reason. I seem to be able to write them while I'm dreaming ... but not in reality. Wish me luck friends :-)
