Earlier this week I made a note to purge more fabric and quilt projects during spring break.
The next day, my friend, Lori, sent an email asking if I wanted to do a quilt along with her. She was going to make this quilt . I had mentioned that I had some of those plaids in my stash. When I pulled out the box marked plaids, I found a paltry selection and remembered that I had used up most of my plaids to make donation quilts. But what about my civil war fabrics? That box is not overflowing but there is enough to make a lap quilt. I was inspired. I turned on Amazon Prime, dusted off my rotary cutter, and jumped in. I decided to make 8″ blocks instead of 12″. At the end of two episodes of Tin Star, I had two star and two 16 patch blocks. I think tomorrow I can get at least 12 more sets done. Thanks Lori for giving me the nudge. So happy you emailed BEFORE I purged my fabrics!
And btw- I did get my sleeves started and narrowed down the hat pattern choices.
Hope there is some fiber in your Friday.
