12 Mini Blocks and Other Progress
Making the mini blocks is just enough to keep me happy as I continue to work on projects around the house. I may have gotten a bit too interested in making the mini blocks to the detriment of other projects. And, while sorting fabrics mini-blocks around, ended up with one "lost."
I had to go back through several piles of sorted fabrics to locate it eventually but not before I made a second one because I thought it was lost forever. I also goofed up with a broken dishes block where I didn't pay close enough attention to the placement of the half-square triangles and ended up with another pinwheel block. But that's okay because I am NOT cutting 180 - 1 1/8th" squares and making five 6-patch blocks (link). Not happening!
I want to end up with 16 mini blocks and, after going thru all the historic/1800s fabrics... I will use what I have on hand rather than shopping for sashing fabric. I am making progress on emptying the two tables but it's slow... everything has to be sorted and put away in an organized manner so I can find it again. This table was piled at least a foot high with fabrics, batting, sewing stuff, etc. that needed sorting.... hope to get it finished this weekend.
I also finished the hat for a friend in Texas who has just finished with chemo but still has radiation therapy going on. I liked how the flower and leaves turned out... that's one pattern I will definitely use again!
