3 goals last week. I completed one! The blue/white swap blocks have been mailed. I did want to work on Petey's blocks. But--I FORGOT THE BACKGROUND fabric at home. Oh well! I didn't load Henrietta's quilt--I had less time than I had planned. But I did pull out a quilt of Henrietta's that needed binding--the binding is made and on--I just need to hand stitch it now.
So my goals for next week will be---
- Make more Petey blocks
- Sew binding on Henrietta's 30's quilt
- Make more 4 patches
4 patches? Where did the 4 patches sneak in??? I'm all about the process of quilting. That's my favorite part. So when I saw a Billie Lauder video on scrappy 4 patches--I couldn't resist.
I have a heaping box of 5" scrap squares. I pulled assorted colors in lights and dark. And, one night when I couldn't sleep I got out of bed and matched them into light/dark pairs. Yes--at 2 AM!

And here are some of the finished 4 patches.

I'm not sure how these will turn out--but if you watch the video about 10-11 minutes along she shows a quilt on the wall made with 4 patches--and that's what caught my eye! Simple, soft--and scrappy! She used a charm pack--good way to use charm packs--but I was thinking of that huge box of charms I have.
Camping season/voluteering is almost over. Last week I saw the Morning Glory's I planted by my camper were finally blooming.
