I've hardly done any sewing at all, but I did finally start the Florida-inspired quilt I've been wanting to do using lots of white and bright colors.
I've been making Lazy 9-Patches. I cut out loads of squares approximately 1.5" and didn't worry too much about how I put them together. It's a very enjoyable, relaxing project. I love working this way with the mismatched seams
I just can't make my mind up about how I want to put them together. Lots of 9-patches all jammed together as a lap quilt? Or do I want it on the wall, maybe with alternate solid blocks in a double 9-patch? I'm going to make some strippy bits and see if I want to throw them in too. I used a Moda Jelly Roll to get the marbled fabric for this job and when I cut my strips 1.5" ish I ended up with lots of 1" strips left over - those would be great stripped onto a foundation block. And do I make some letters too? Dunno...
Tommorrow is our last full day here and I tell you, I'm just not ready to go yet although it will be good to see the kitties again. I hear tell that Pokey has gotten into the kitchen cabinet trying to get her treats and and has been doing a great job of hunting down socks.
Off to dinner now - we're getting Buffalo Wings - mmmmm.
