The Weekly List - Late Again!
i'm 6/7 of the way done with my wonky 1930s log cabin blocks. i'm up to 42, and i need 49. i have my strips cut out and organized for this last set, so maybe i'll get to that this week.
. . . unless i'm distracted by my latest obsession: fabric polaroid blocks:
i started making these for a swap about 10 days ago. the first weekend i made a mere 30. fast forward about 8 days and i have 188 completed blocks and another 60 or so centers cut out, some of which i attached one side to this morning before work!
here's my stack of 60 for the swap hosted by Duke Says Sew What:
i plan to make myself a pretty large quilt out of these.
in betwixt my log cabins and polaroids, i managed to squeeze in four blocks for a special project, started a baby quilt for M's niece, made a trip to the museum with my six year old niece, and a managed a wee bit of garment sewing.
kitten helped with fabric selection for the baby quilt:
and, just because, here's a gratuitous picture of the kitten doing what he does best:
goals for this week:
---> finish latest batch of fabric polaroid blocks
---> finish 1930s log cabin blocks
---> finish Giant Star baby quilt for M's niece
