I had such a good plan last week. My first project was to finish the blue stars for Smith Mountain Morning so I could put it away and get to quilting the hexi quilt. I used the cornerstones for the courthouse steps block as my leaders and enders. That lead to sewing a few more of those blocks which lead to what the heck, may as well finish those up and be done with them. So that's what I did. Smith Mountain Morning is ready to be laid out.
Then I took a coffee break and read some blogs. I read Katy's blog where she showed her 9 patch wall hanging. Afterwards, I went back in the sewing room with intentions of putting SMM away but instead...
I started making 9 patches from the remaining 1 1/2" strips. Just a few, and a few more, and a few more. Next thing I knew I was laying out my 9 patches and sewing them together into 2 wall hangings.
One is finished, this one will be finished soon. Pitiful isn't it! I am such a follower. But they are so cute and one will make a nice gift. I didn't have to store those strips. I used up 2 small pieces of fabric-one for the borders and bindings and one for the back and those scraps of batting I don't have to store. A method to my madness. LOL
I can't sew without leaders and enders so I worked on more 9 patches. These started out as 4 patches but that plan changed to needing 9 patches. See those extra blue and brown squares? I cut the shortie/short strips into squares instead of putting them back in the strip bin.
I am making another plan for my week. Let's see how I do...
- Finish the 2nd wall hanging.
- The Hexi Quilt--baste, quilt, bind.
- Take SMM to Wednesday group and decide on a layout.
- Sew some Pineapple Crazy blocks.
