Last week I finished making Barn Dance blocks and took them off the design wall. The wall was naked so I put the Scrappy Trips blocks up--
A furrows setting, I think I like it better than the original way shown next--
The chains of dark blue just wandered off the edges of the quilt and looked like the planning had been interrupted. (Sorry about the quality of the pictures, night shots always look dingy and dreary!) There weren't enough blocks and there was no more of that particular dark blue. Ripped the first 20 blocks apart and then made more blocks using assorted dark blue chains to set them 6x7 (42). Boy sized!! I started these blocks prior to 2010 for sure. Wildly scrappy and I love it! It will be hard to part with it but I can make another. Recently the discussion on Stashbusters was if we ever repeated a pattern? Most definitely, I've made at least five of these. Each one looks different. Please see everyone's design wall post at Patchwork Times.
Arrange Scrappy Trips blocks
Plan some borders
Start a New Project
Ah--a new project! Its been simmering on the back burner for a while. I need to do a bit more math and planning.
Harvest is going to keep us busy. Not sure where I'll fit in any sewing. But I'll try!!
