it's gone viral on Instagram,
if you want to follow my drivel over there i am trudi_wood
(same on twitter)
so back to #sccrappytripalong - pattern is here
flickr group is here
so i raided my 2 1/2" strips, pulled all the pretty Amy Butler ones and some other lovelies
and soon had a pretty block for my efforts
and then there were 8 ...
and after returning to work, and going out and doing a couple of hours each night,
then there were 16
at which point the pretties had all but run out and I turned to my stash,
and calculated how many more strips I needed for another 20 blocks,
and cut, and cut, and cut ...
and unusually, refolded and returned said stash to the pantry, all nice and neat!
(no I don't think I was feeling quite myself!)
and soon there were all 36 blocks done!
so yesterday I laid them out ...
and after an afternoon of gentle piecing went in search of backing
seems I had just the right amount of this Pure by Sweetwater for Moda
so I loaded it up before I changed my mind and saved it for something else!
and whilst the momentum was still with me ...
got that baby quilted!
and before retiring for the night, I went back to the pantry, pulled a few potential bindings, made a decision and cut, ready for a little more sewing action this morning!
I started this a week ago, and seems I could have another finish for you very soon!
And then, perhaps I can get back to what I should have been doing all this time!
Perhaps this will keep me more on track, and get that startitis back under control!
