Happy Boxing Day!Did you have a nice holiday? Our holidays are becoming more a Christmas week. We started with a nice lunch on Christmas Eve with Nik (our son), Audrey and the girls. Yesterday we visited Mom and later Nik and Audrey brought their new 10 week old pup to visit. Ruca (the pup) was Scout's favorite present!
My personal favorite, because it is so true!
I did get in some sewing this past week and am continuing my quest of getting rid of things I am finding in the sewing room. A gazillion years ago, I was using up odd pieces of fabric to make pinwheels. I think they may have been triangular pieces from a snowball quilt I made. They are small and I hadn't realized I made about 150 of them. Back when I made them, I was a very frugal quilter and of course, my eyesight was better.
I made four patches out of them which made a nice 7 inch block. I tried a variety of layouts with them but each scenario seemed to busy. I reverted to doing something I hadn't also done in years which is an alternate solid block (in indigo). I think it turned out nice:
This piece kept reminding me of oldest and best friend Linda and when I texted her the photo, she swooned over it. I did run out of the navy fabric and have to pick some up for a nice border but the piece will make a nice lap quilt and coordinate with her navy couches. I even have enough blocks left to make a tablerunner for her sideboard. Win win and less in the stash drawers!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday! Be sure to visit our other participating bloggers by visiting LeeAnna!
Have a great day!
