Pretty Colours for September
I'm trying to find an interesting pattern for these socks, but so far all I'm doing it stashing new ideas for future projects.
I've started on the second Christmas quilt. I've 2 of the 3 sets of blocks cut out. I realized after I was half through cutting the second set of blocks, that I could have save a whole bunch of time by strip piecing and cutting out whole rows of pieced squares. Now I have to lay out every set of squares for each row, making sure that the blue print is running the same way, since it's directional. Oh well, the quilt is only going to be about 55in. x 65 in., so it shouldn't take that much time to piece together, even doing it the long way.
Now to get the third fabric cut up and to sit down and piece this baby together, in time to get it quilted.
