My two projects

No sewing at all yesterday -- did the school shopping thing with daughter and grandkids. Briana is more than set for school - which doesn't start until September 5 for them (in this area, the schools are starting on different days next week and the week after).

I finished this block on Thursday night and if I had taken the time on Thursday to prep a few more like I was going to, I could have gotten another done Friday night -- but I was too tired to pull fabric and make decisions.


For my 1-hour quilt, I cut the rest of the strips into 2 patches today; then assembled strips of 5. I have the sides ready to be added to all the blocks, but I only had time to put one together completely today. I like the block a lot. Probably won't be working on it for another 3 days though -- have a picnic/baby shower out of town tomorrow, guild and a workshop on Monday, and errands to run on Tuesday.


Gratitudes:

1. Made it safely home yesterday, even though I had to drive through rain the whole way (but we didn't get much at all!)

2. Sleeping in today.

3. Dinner out tonight (I hope :-0)!

Your scrappy border looks great! Each of these is so different and so attractive. Judy picked a great pattern!

Everything is looking good! I also use up partial bobbins when I'm scrap piecing. I also do garment sewing, so have lots of colored bobbins which I seldom need again for a long time, so it works out well to use them up when scrap piecing.

Both blocks are wonderful! I"m really loving the idea of all the little blocks around the shoo fly!
