After last week's pickle situation,
I am all excited to be sewing on a found project,
better know as a squirrel.
Did you all see there is a Squirrel! Club?
I love it!
I've had these 4 gifted blocks for quite a few years.
I've always known I wanted to continue and make a quilt with them.
I pulled out my 30's fabrics to bust more of these scraps.
Then I got online and ordered yardage for borders, binding and backing.
That center block on the top row was from my very first project using the Tri-Recs rulers.
I made a table mat and made enough to make 2 but only made 1.
It's being used in the bus.
I still have 8 little blocks so I using 4 as corner blocks on the outside border.
I sat down at the computer and chose a few blocks.
It was lots of fun to choose and kit up these blocks.
It was more fun to sew them.
I have these 2 blocks to sew up and then I can set them.
We are headed back to the beach with family this week,
so that won't happen until the weekend.
As I was cutting,
I noticed all the rulers I had out.
I like to call these the tools of my trade. 😉
I like the Essential Triangle Ruler but on occasion,
I grab the old standby Easy Angle and Companion Angle.
Another UFO is being busted!
It felt good to make great progress this weekend.
It was so hot here that I didn't mind spending all that time
in my air conditioned sewing room.
