I Lied ... Sort Of ...

But first, a celebration (or two)!

Winter Snow flimsy is finished!

I already had it folded and ready to mail before I remembered to take a picture -- hence the creases.  This is a sample for a class I'll be teaching at Susan's Calico Creations in Fulton, IL on June 7.  If you live in that area, give Susan a call at 815-589-2221 and get the details for the class.  We'll be working on variations of log cabin triangles with a couple of options for small projects to learn on.

Second, I was featured on  Free Motion by the River Linky Tuesday.  Thanks, Connie!

Now, the lie -- in Monday's post I boldly stated that "Butterscotch" would be my next leader/ender project.  Turns out it needs a little more thought and planning -- and a design wall which has been occupied with other things the last few days.

So I grabbed a box labeled "Lavender and Lime" and discovered not one, not two, but THREE potential L/E projects!  Take a look ...

Mary's Triangles
First, there was an assortment of Mary's Triangle blocks made from remnants of another project, already organized into rows.  I have been assembling the rows as L/Es while making Disappearing 4-Patches from a collection of these ...

... also made from remnants of that previous project -- I think I may have finally outgrown my love of purple and lime!!  Anyway, the result ...

Disappearing 4-Patch Blocks
I went to Jenny Doan's You-Tube demo to refresh my memory on how to make these.  While I love her tutorials for so many interesting twists on traditional blocks, I think she glosses over the importance of pressing.  So if you want to know more, tune in tomorrow when I'll do a little tute of my own.

See April 9 post for my solution!

Oh, the third L/E project?  It's more Mary's Triangles in black and blue.  It looks like I need to do a little cutting before those blocks can be finished.  Stay tuned!

  1. Winter Snow turned out great. How big is it? And I think that scraps are like rabbits - they multiply when you aren't looking. Have fun with them
