While it has been hot, hot, hot here, this morning some light rain and a drop in temperatures has been appreciated by everyone in the family....including our new (first ever family) pets!
Welcome Snuffleupagus (grey boy) and Emily (green girl) Budgie. There are lots of words related to patchwork that the spell checker questions me about, but apparently Snuffleupagus is a word, cos its in spell checker! Our six year old son named the budgies and in case you didn't know Emily is a green female train from Thomas the Tank Engine and Snuffleupagus is a large hairy mammoth like creature on Sesame Street!
Right back to quilty things - this is my box of scrap blue fabrics. It was compressed into 2 zip lock bags of A4 size when we moved house - but has grown since being released into a box! While it has been hot I have been ironing (argh) and cutting (bliss, love my Go cutter) the larger pieces into triangles and squares. See my new box...loving Kmart fishing section!
The partitions are really deep in this box. There is literally one green triangle and about 40 in each stack of the blue. The question is - should I use the triangles to make my leaders and enders blocks OR
should I make something new!! Like Ocean waves???
Sigh. I am a little ahead of myself...no white triangles yet!
BUT I do have lots more log cabin blocks, 83 to be exact. This has been a fun project during the heat of the day. Hmmm except I am about to run out of the red I was using for the centres.
I either make the blocks bigger (currently 5.5"unfinished)
I start using different reds for the centres?
I want a big quilt!
Happy quilting, Sue.
