I used mostly Woolies by Maywood Studio, and today was a perfect day to sew the blocks together, as it was cold and snowy - the flannel kept me warm. There are 70 blocks, made up of 140 units I sewed last week. What do you think of the chevron look?
After all the trimming, I was left with a lot of triangles, light stacked onto dark fabric. I usually stuff the pieces in a bag for later use. The problem is that 'later' never seems to come by. This time I decided to sew those triangles together for another project, and did so before I even pieced the blocks.
Once I press the half-square triangles, I will trim them down to a 3" block, and will start looking for a good pattern for them. I will finish this 'Crooked Path' quilt first, though.
There is little time to quilt lately, sometimes only a couple of hours during the week. The dog has changed my routine, and I have DH to thank.
What have you been up to? Are you ready for February? I can't believe it is just around the corner!
