I saw a Carolina Chain quilt on someones blog, using a Bonnie Hunter pattern of the same name, but not set on point and I fell in love! I own Addicted to Scraps by Bonnie Hunter, AND I love four and nine patches, so this little five inch block was just calling my name. AND I was over the two blocks I have been making for a couple of years as part of the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge. So my solution...start a new block! Sew having a lovely time making blue and green Carolina chain blocks and enjoying using 2" instead of depleted 2.5" scraps.
Mangofeet blog - LOL Its a Bonnie Hunter pattern called Jewel Box Stars! Cute four patches (of which I have oodles) and half square triangles.....which I hate making and don't have any pre cut scraps for. So I just shelved it for time being...but its day to shine will come, just not today! Which you can remind me in 2019 - that I need to start RSC year making some HST! Perhaps if I put a reminder in my phone that might happen!
This photo below is also a Bonnie Hunter pattern from her book Adventures with Leaders and Enders, and is a braid. I am not making a quilt, but thought I needed a utility table runner for under the pot plants and wanted to try this pattern. Well that is my excuse for starting a new project and I am sticking to it! Honestly I am easily distracted of late when it comes to sewing and I blame being busy! Everytime I turn around there is a new problem that needs solving at work and at home, and I dont have the brain power and energy to cope with working on an existing project....because that requires brain power and I just want to mindlessly sew...so I start something new!
Oh, Oh! I am already regretting it, but thankfully that is what orphan blocks and charity groups are for if it all goes pear shaped at some stage!
Happy quilting Sue.
