Some Actual Stitching!
AND it's orange!
I need to make a 12" block for a friend who is making a charity quilt with donated blocks. This is the pattern I chose to make -- simple and easy -- but somehow my confidence in what size pieces I need to cut was shakey so I decided to run up a sample with my orange scraps.
Funny thing -- last night, after making all the units and a sample block, I turned the page over and there were the cutting instructions! DUH
My plan for the week is to finish organizing the scraps, then move the laptop and all the "office stuff" back upstairs so that I can make better use of that wall space in the studio. I would like to put some storage units there, but we'll have to relocate the wifi booster. You can imagine with all the lights, machines, and iron required for sewing I pretty much have all available plugs occupied. (Apparently the previous owners who finished off the basement didn't anticipate my needs.) So that may end up being a larger design wall, instead. Oh, darn ....
Linking up with Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.
