Red Cowboy Quilt - binding on....forgot the label, so not quite a finish.
All 9 of the Dresden Plates, completed. Now just have to find and purchase some background fabric.
Completed the outstanding three Scrappy Trips blocks and
wasted spent an hour or so debating layouts. In the end I just went with it, the layout possibilities were endless.
I broke a needle on the last Scrappy trips row. You couldn't do this if you tried...managed to jam the broken needle back into the eye of snapped off point...and you were thinking I had made a miners pick for a mouse?
Then sufficiently crazed in the heat that I decided to count my leaders and enders...only cos I had run out of prepared blocks...which was perfectly timed as I had finished all my piecing.
Colour coordinating them was optional, but like I said....the heat was getting to me..
I cut another 33 spool pieces ready to piece...they are in the brown basket ready to go....and as you can see the bag of 1.5" strips is nearly empty. I think I will cut extra strips of specific colours that I am lacking next time, as I don't have a lot of yellow or orange spools.
194 spool blocks made + 33 cut out = not enough, but guess you can call it the half way mark! The aim is 400 blocks, but will wait and see at which point I get bored/over it. Please note the fabric (yellow/green basket) is full of left over scraps that I cut into 1.5' squares...cos obviously I am now completely nuts or bored. Or perhaps both? Must be catching, DS1 is now rolling over the completed Scrappy trips top...just rolling back and forth....?!!
