I have lots of stuff going on this week and today I'm trying to get organized so everything gets done early and I won't have to rush around like a mad woman later. I've started to pull fabric together for a pillowcase sew-in Saturday that I am organizing for local charities. I'm excited because that will certainly bust some stash!
I'm ready to start adding borders to my coffee fabric Twisted 9 Patch. I'm auditioning border fabrics but think I know what I'm going to use. I'll post a picture when I'm done with the top.
Since the 9 patch blocks were my leader/ender blocks, I had to pick something else to use, and I decided to pull out the 5" squares from a guild exchange a couple of years ago. Here are the stacks of squares separated by value, etc.
When it was time to use them, I just started pulling fabric and sewing them together to be used in a totally scrappy quilt from the book Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth and Charlene Thode. I'm really excited about this because this will be my first TOTALLY scrappy quilt - no planning, no matching, etc.
Below is a picture of the first couple of rows (actually, only part of the rows). Since the piecing of the blocks will be mainly from leaders/enders, this will take a while to complete, but I can't wait.
Check out what others have on their design walls by going to Judy L.'s Patchwork Times blog. Who know, maybe you'll see something that will get your creative juices flowing.
