The heat makes me feel like this:
but I’ve been managing to finish a few things:
This is an abbreviated version of Blackbird Designs’ “Trick or Treat” quilt, from their book “When the Cold Wind Blows”. I started working on their “Love Letters” quilt from the same book. The blocks are VERY large and it took several days to prep a single one. In the meantime I thought I would try making one of the cute little baskets. Well, wouldn’t you know, I couldn’t make just one! So I have been calling them “Potato Chip Baskets”.
Speaking of baskets, I also had to try “just one” of the 2″ cakestand blocks that Temecula Quilt Company was making daily in July. I managed to finish a few more, it was fun to make a small block for a change:
Last but not nearly all inclusive, I have been working on some Carpenter’s Wheel blocks, always wanted to try them, and, well, these are 12″ blocks with 112 pieces each, and they take about 1/2 a day to make! Yeah.
We are counting the days until school starts again, and looking forward to some cooler weather!
