and get some things completed. It's not that I haven't been getting things "done", it's just that I haven't gotten anything "finished". But it has been fun!!! *VBS* I've had so much fun playing with the MAM scraps in that hospital washtub. I'm still not done emptying the tub, so I don't know how many "quilt seeds" it contained. I have begun setting some of them with these odd lattice strips, a donation gift bag packed with pre-cut 2.5" purple/white printed strips.
I've turned a FQ bundle gift from my friend Cher into these Vanishing 9 patch blocks...enough for a donation quilt top. Just gotta lay them out and sew, sew, sew!
And I've used up nearly all my 2" strips in this "Fun with Bricks" from Quiltville. I need more 2" strips cut and sewn into those 2" X 3.5" blocks! I've also sewn up a Fence Rail variation from Barbie fabrics. A couple more rows and that one will be ready for finishing.
BUT... what I really NEED to do, is finish this one. I was 16 squares short.I got those made this weekend and joined up the blocks and rows yesterday. Now for pressing and a backing. This one is headed for a baby boy who's due on August 13th. I'm setting myself a goal to finishing this one up this week, and getting one more top pinned and ready to go. It's a mini goal I know, but I've had a really "goal-less" few months, where I just puttered. Time to get busy!!
