The weekend before last I cleaned my old sewing room and it’s closet. While cleaning I found a box of red fabric I had cut a few years ago with a rotary cutter. The triangles and squares were not cut accurately due to the fabric shifting under the ruler . It was actually the last time I tried cutting triangles for hst’s and I don’t remember the quilt I was going to make with them now.
The fabric almost went into a trash bag but then I realized I could use the AccuQuilt GO! to re-cut everything and I did. Boy, I thought black was a difficult color to photograph. The crappy looking window in the background, that’s going to be my dry erase board. Hopefully I have time soon to knock some of that old lead paint off and repaint it, grins.
So I decided to make a Tree of Life block, shared last week. Since, I have made additional blocks all from 2″ finished hst’s, 2″ finished squares and 4″ finished hst’s. It’s no easy task finding blocks that only uses these sizes/
So far I’ve been pretty lucky. Think it’s time for me to add a new design wall? Before I make additional blocks I’m trying to plan on a layout. To this point there was no planning, I just started stitching. There are more flying geese than what is shown below. I’m undecided about the chain block in the upper right corner below.
