It all started yesterday while I enjoyed a little quilty time with friends. While Marilyn added the sashing around these cute heart blocks.
And Shelly put together these nine patches.
I started cutting pieces
for Suzy and Ruth to sew into Shoo Fly blocks
And I couldn’t stop. Very unusual, as I hate cutting and see it as the necessary evil in quilting. But I kept cutting. I cut these squares left over from the strips I used to cut the Shoo Fly pieces.
Then I cut into these texture prints I had sorted into a bag after I learned of Cynthia’s method of putting scraps together according to what she thinks will make a great quilt.
Though I don’t know what will become of them yet. They are cut into strips that I can use my half square and quarter square rulers to cut them into squares and triangles that lend themselves will to many of Bonnie’s free patterns. Who knows I may make keep going and make a serious dent in the quilty hug stash.
