This started as an "I don't want to work on any of my projects that require real thought so I will try this project that I saw in Quiltmaker magazine" night.
I tried it - I liked it - and immediately all thoughts of finishing up some other WISPS got pushed aside as I started cutting and sewing and pressing and cutting again to prepare for 120 of these blocks - half light and half dark. Each block is only 5" finished, so even this quantity will only make a moderately sized throw.
I found fun stuff in my scrap bag that worked together color wise - greens and rusts and browns and golds - even some leftovers from my son's baby quilt and the "Just Me and My SIS" quilt I just "finished."
Well - finished as far as any of my projects recently. I have 3 recent finishes that have all gotten to the flimsie stage and gone no further (this one and 2 others - pics of those to follow in a future post).
Something about wrestling with batting and backing and a top in 90 degree heat and humidity with no a/c has been somewhat of a deterrent. So I cut and piece on other projects and create more flimsies. There will be time enough for the next step when the coolness comes - which in western NY could be next week for all we know!
