Most of my weekend was spent assembling blocks and watching football. The blocks are all scrappy and from the 3 1/2 inch strip bin. This is not my normal size as I really like 2 1/2 inch strips…and now I remember why. If the fabric is
ugly not a favorite it needs to be cut smaller. 3 1/2 is a pretty big chunk. And my bin of 3 1/2 strips is pretty picked over…..there are a lot of uglies unfavorable pieces in this bin!
I’m working on Patchwork Park from
I really like making shaded 4 patch blocks. Judy’s scrap block this month got me started and this pattern seemed to be the best use of my scraps using that shaded 4 patch. Here’s what I’ve gotten up on the wall so far.
I’m going bigger than the 60 inches in Gayle’s book. My plan is to use up most of this bin and end up about 90 inches. So far it is going together pretty quickly….as long as I don’t study the fabric or be too choosy.
Let’s go to Patchwork Times and see what’s going up on other design walls.
