Today was the day I was going to find a book I have been looking for. It's in my house, I know that much. All I want are 3 letters to make my initials for my BTCT last border. I know the book is here. In the meantime, I started cleaning and sorting and opening bags and boxes. I wasn't expecting to find the book in them, I was curious as to what was tucked away in them. First I pulled out these.
Then I found these four blocks, all folded up and tucked between a few trays of strips on my thread cabinet. They were from a class I was teaching, oh about 7 or 8 years ago. Since putting 4 blocks together is less work than 20 blocks, I started on this. Decided it needed some type of sashing, pulled out the solid blue, perfect! Cut strips and trim to the right length, perfect. The last little bit off the strip went to the center 9 patch. Then it needed a border. Since the print is directional, I contemplated how to cut the borders. I pondered this and decided this is going to be a table cloth, so I put all the prints going from the center out. Blocked the corners with the solid blue. Put it in the pile of quilts to be quilted. Hey, it's out of the block pile and now into the top pile, I consider that a win!
I hope everyone who made the trek is enjoying Sisters, can't wait to cruise around blogland next week and see all the fabulous quilts that hung in the town today.
...who is still looking for a book!
