While it hasn't been the most productive week for me, I did find some time to sew this Saturday. In addition to the charity block, of course.
I started working on the kit from my quilt group. They've named it One, Two, Three Quilt because the blocks are either single pieces, two strips or three strips. The twos had been sewn by another quilter, but the rest was up to me.
It doesn't look all that messy, but it got worse as the strips got longer! 11x15 blocks (6" finished each) is a lot of sewing... I might be further along at this point, but I had to pick up and move downstairs, as the hubby was sleeping in the next room. Usually he says it's okay because he has a fan to drown out the machine noise, but that died a few days ago and just try to find a fan in the middle of winter!
All tidied up, but not quite finished. I think each row needs three more squares/blocks. You can see it's pretty random - just whatever was in the donated box, and it's so against my matchy-matchy way of doing things, but I'm doing okay. Just working hard at not worrying!
And then there's the single blocks to use up my stash.

That green is giving me fits to photograph...
Again this week, these two were the only blocks of all the daily blocks I liked, so still keeping pace! Anyone besides me notice they're in alphabetical order? While most of the time that might appeal to the organized side of me, somehow this time it's bugging me. It's not random enough...go figure...
On a non-quilty note, my brother has a blog. He builds model cars and he's really good at it. But I had to laugh because his latest post he shows his "stash" of kits. While he's not a quilter, I believe having 3 aunts, a sister, a mom and a wife who are may have influenced his choice of words. And the number he has, well, it probably is well-described as a stash!
Time to go spend some quality time with the hubby. We're having a snowstorm this evening and it's a good night to curl up under a quilt and take advantage of Netflix.
