After completing several projects with deadlines I was ready to begin working on my owl quilt which is still on the design wall. One problem came up: I couldn’t find my tree fabric. I remembered folding it up and putting it away but I couldn’t remember where that away was. It only took me two days of looking before I found it staring at me, right on the shelf across from my studio knitting chair. So I now can present my incomplete sashing strips for the second block.
Here you can get kind of an idea how this block will look. I don’t want the sashings to all look alike so this set is using single branches.
Tomorrow I am going shopping with my daughter so these strips will not get sewn until Tuesday. I am planning on working one block a day but we will see how that goes.
The reason I can’t count on getting one block a day done is that I tend to get sidetracked. Case in point, this fleece throw I threw together yesterday.
It is two pieces of fleece and looks great as a recliner cover in our living room. I just needed something more to identify my little corner of DH’s B Western Cowboy museum room. And, already the puppies have claimed it as their sleeping place.
I did complete this quilt and it has already been gifted.
I love the binding, I think it really pulls the quilt together.
And I made two more receiving blankets. I was really on a roll, wasn’t I?
So I guess that’s about all from here. I will be linking up with Patchwork Times and What a Hoot so drop by and check out the creativity. Gari
