Projects Mid-month Check-in This and That
I had another post planned to go live today but I just couldn’t pull the trigger on it yet. Instead, how about a little mid-month check-in on a little bit of this and that projects? Nothing that really goes together but it’s all kind of related to a bunch of different (squirrel) unplanned projects in progress.
Projects This #1
Cutting and cutting of those lovely batik fabrics that I won from Quilting Gail ensued one night after work. You know how it is when you get a project in your head? Even if the idea was suggested by someone else, the seed is planted and then I ended up watering it at work until it would not be denied. Enough so that I had to draw out the block in EQ8, test out a few color combinations and print out the small paper-pieced portion of the block (top right corner). The tutorial is from Sandra at mmm Quilts and her 2017 Freefall QAL (quilt-along).
There may be just enough fabric for a table runner since this block is 7.5″ unfinished. I paired up 10 combinations of the fabrics with the darker colors planned as the background. There is some extra fabric of the light mushroom fabric pictured above, so maybe I could add a small border.
Projects That #1
The other off-the-books or not on “The List” project is the hexagon table topper for Sue’s sister. We have some 60-degree triangles cut out in a pretty gray fabric. A 7.5″ circle was printed to make the round snowman heads, and a template for a few snowflakes has been found and printed.
Now it’s just a matter of deciding which snowflake size works best. After that, it’s time to get started on the appliqué of the half-circle snowman heads.
