Last week my house was full. My family including
this new little guy.
Sanford, 5 weeks
Despite the fact that all of us were prepared to
take care of him...
I occasionally stole away to my sewing room for
a bit of fabric respite.
I have been slowly working on gathering, cutting,
and refolding fabrics for a scrappy red and white
I decided to use only reds and white fabrics
so I have been rooting in my reds
cutting 2 inch strips
matching them up with white strips
topping it off with a Thangles strip,
and sewing them into half square triangles.
I'm going to use Bonnie Hunter's idea of "Leaders and Enders" and
stitch these units together during the year as I work on
Did you notice back under the picture of Bonnie's quilt the number
of half square triangles required to make the 91"x 104" quilt?
2124 stitched pieces!
I probably wont' make it that big. I'll just have to see
how far I get. You never know.
So even though the family was here and there were lots of meals
to make and a baby to hold and Christmas to enjoy
I stole a few moments for me.
Happy New Year, friends!
May all your new projects bring you joy.Until Next Time-
