The Mojo brothers are working overtime. They have been paging through a recent used book purchase and love it.
First choice was "All in a Row" by Kim Diehl.
A box of 2.5" squares will become centers for these blocks. I resized the pattern to use 2.5" and that means the blocks will finish at 14". A nice size.
I'm not sure where I'm going with these blocks. The top three can be r/w/b and the bottom three scrappy. I love Monkey Wrench and 9 patches so they are easy to love! Maybe they will become like the Album blocks, just fun and relaxing to make. Some quilters agonize when trying to make a scrap quilt. How do you pick the fabrics? Will they play nicely together? They are unable to do "random". This color does not go with that color! I do not have that problem. How did I pick the fabrics I used in these blocks? They either were laying on the cutting table or close to my sewing machine. The 9 patches were pulled from my 2.5" squares box. I periodically put fabrics back on my shelves otherwise lazy me would use the same fabrics over and over! Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.
Play with precut 2.5" squares
This week McCalls Quilting magazine arrived and I was immediately drawn to this quilt. Sunny Squares by Kate Colleran. When I play with my 2.5" squares I can make the 16 patches needed for this quilt. A Win-Win! Mojos love it too.
Mojos are getting plenty of exercise. That is four new starts for the summer! Volunteering starts this week so there will be minimal sewing time, at least for a few days. Flowers to plant and camper to organize. If it rains I can sew and read. Life is good!!
