Long time, no see. I’ve missed you. I honestly can’t believe it’s been almost a month. When I decided to start doing my WHOOMP There IT Is! linky party 1x/mo (first Fridays), I didn’t intend to only blog 1x/mo! But that’s about where I am. I do plan to blog at least twice a month though.
The month flew by and even though I had a few finishes, I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished much. Maybe because the last couple of quilts were very simple patterns? Who knows. Truth be told, I’ve been in some kind of mood lately and I really hope it passes soon because I don’t like feeling this way.
I finished the commission for 2 baby quilts. A friend/coworker ordered a quilt for each of her grandsons who will both be turning a year old in August. She got the quilts on Tuesday and is very pleased and excited to present them in August.
And here’s my other finish.
When I get to the end of a piece of fabric, 7″ or less, I usually strip it down into strings ranging from 2.5″ – 1″. Well one day, a long, long time ago, I got a wild hair and decided to sew all my 1″ strings together (in jellyroll race fashion) and this is what it yielded. Too thin to be a lap quilt, and too wide to be a table runner, I’m calling it a bed runner. It sat as a flimsy until last month when #4 was chosen in our UFO Challenge 2016, and now it’s finished!
One last thing I want to share before the party is a pattern test I’m working on. It’s a pattern called Scrappy Litter Blox by Lillyella. The pattern will be included in the June Stash Builder Box. I usually like to get all the cutting out of the way first, but not this time. I had to put at least one block together to show you.
I’ve quite a bit more cutting to do but the block goes together rather quickly. I’ll finish cutting tonight and hopefully get most of the quilt together this weekend. And speaking of this weekend, it’s supposed to get upwards of 117° here in Phoenix! So yeah, I’ll be indoors ALL weekend stitchin’!
Eeek! It’s going to be a long summer. =( Maybe I can come visit one of you this summer. Anywhere is cooler than here!
So what have you been stitchin’ on? I’d love to see it!
