Heading Off

With the school year coming to a close
Running Man and I will be heading off
on an adventure soon.

I'll be away from my
computer for a couple of weeks

as we are exploring 

I'll be excited to share what we did,
what we saw, 
 the yummy food we ate
and the wonderful people we met.
Be back soon.

Until Next Time-

Wednesday's check in

Four months ago
Sheryl Johnson, the owner of
started a SAL
called One Block Wednesday.

It wasn't doing one block each Wednesday
but rather, repeating the same block 12 times
each Wednesday until you completed 360 blocks.

I did that for a while, but
I have to confess,

I needed to plow ahead
and get them done.
Doing the same  block  x 12 each week for
30 weeks wasn't going to hold
my attention for too long.

Here are the blocks
many of us have been sewing.

It was the perfect project for
 using my featherweight machine.

I was using bits and pieces of fabric scraps and
by chain piecing 10 blocks at a time

it wasn't long before all 360 blocks were done!

 Then I began sewing them
 together randomly in sets of two.

I'd guess most of them lined up
just right.
Those that didn't....
oh, well.

 Then the sets of twos

became four.
This is when the pressing really paid off
so the seams would mesh together.
It made for happy sewing.

The top is complete.

56" x 77"

It's a mish mash of colors 
and patterns.

All free from the stash
with blocks alternating 
light and dark.

The plan is to 
 get it machine quilted this summer.
Fingers crossed.

for sharing such a great idea.
It was fun to do.

Until Next Time-
