You would laugh if you could see me doing my little happy dance. I love these blocks. Each one is unique and so much fun to put together. I have seven done, out of 24 (or is it 25?). If I make six a day, this Birdseye quilt will be a reality in no time. These star blocks will be combined with double nine patch blocks (hence the reason for making 121 nine patch units!). The setting for this quilt is simple, but due to the piecing of the two different blocks in the top, and a diagonal set, it looks so much more complicated than it is.
In spite of my big boo boo of sewing the brown and white half square triangles all wrong (instead of brown I used the prints), I am making good progress. I did have to rip out 24 half square triangles, but the bias edges didn't stretch and no fabric was wasted. No harm done to fabric in the making of this quilt.
This is the sort of day it has been. It has been pouring rain for over 12 hours here, with no let up at all. Well, I guess I won't have to water the roses will I? I didn't want to leave Sophie in the house while I went to work, so I left her in the garage with the door open. When I got home, she was soaking wet from frolicking out in the rain, but at least had the option of coming into the warmer, dry garage. Aren't you glad you aren't a dog? It would be so boring to get left home all day. Or worse, left out in the rain!
This is the sort of day that makes me crave
