The List - Progress Report #3
Last weekend, though, I managed to make 30 bow-tie blocks and kept 5 so I have 25 to trade. I don't know why it was so hard for me to get to these. Or get the photos out of the camera. These left on their journey a week ago. This one is my favorite, I think - leftovers from my jelly roll race quilt (which has yet to be sandwiched, quilted or bound =< .)
Krista and the Old Red Barn Co. Granny Square quilt-along (tardy as ever!) but I finished 9 more granny square blocks for a total now of 12. I need 20 for my quilt, I think, so I have a few more to make. Don't you love the fabrics?
I have not had to cut the first square - except for the setting triangles (which aren't really squares at all, of course.) I really hate waste, and I couldn't imagine what I would do with all those white Kona bits, so I used Tracy's tutorial and cut triangles that fit (sorry I haven't cut the dog-ears yet). The added bonus is that with Tracy's method, the squares don't have bias sides, so I think the quilt should go together better. If I ever finish all the blocks.
Happy Monday. I'm going back to the couch now.
