Monday’s Blocks

I made 9 today, this is getting very addictive. :-)

I’m posting the day after. I tend to finish sewing late, 10 or 11pm & it’s no use taking pics then because:
a. the light is bad &
b. I’m cross-eyed by that time.

Here I am doing the bit that takes the most concentration & freaks me out the most, trimming the blocks back to 10 1/2”. I always worry I’ll stuff it up!!!!

trimming

The room looks surprisingly tidy, it’s actually a total tip. I literally hoy all the offcuts on the floor as I go. Later I’ll sit on the floor & sort through them all to salvage the useful scraps. I make miniature quilts with 1” squares so most scraps are usable.

Well ... you have been a busy little quilter!! You're doing a great job. ... I'm still working on my heart project at the moment, so I'll have to post some updates soon.
