Not much change in my design wall this week.
I finished all the string blocks for Rock Island Campfires and assembled them into 30 foursies with sashing. After much fumbling with paper, I think I have worked out a reasonable routine for taking it off without totally destroying my blocks. Yesterday afternoon I was able to tear paper off five blocks in one hour; it had taken me all morning to do the first five.
One row is together, another has the paper off and another is staged on the design wall while I audition cornerstone fabric. I had planned to use a red, but it didn't sparkle enough. Thinking now about going with a lime green. Also having second thoughts about my border (which was the inspiration for my blocks, BTW) so you may have to help me make a decision next week when the center portion is together.
Temps are frigid today and the wind is howling. It's a good day to stay in and sew. I want to get as much done today as possible since the remainder of this week and next I'm on call for jury duty.
That will be a new experience for me. I have only served on one other jury and it was a complicated criminal case, but at least we weren't sequestered. Every other time I've been called I have had a reasonable excuse -- sole provider for small children and moving out of the county. This time I got to choose the weeks I wanted to serve so I chose early -- first, to get it over with and second, more chance of being cancelled due to bad weather. LOL
Gee, I wonder if the bailiff will let me tear off paper in the courtroom .....
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.
Keep warm and quilt on!
