I know I said siesta. It’s coming, just not quite yet.
We arrived home on Saturday evening. After a quick dinner, and because my bag was missing and I couldn’t start the laundry (too bad, huh?), I made my April Virtual Quilting Bee Block.
Amanda Jean sent us red and white solids and as soon as I saw them, I knew what I wanted to do. I used the same basic strip piecing that I did in the pillow. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I like the wonky squares and am planning on doing something like this on a larger scale. I need to remember that it really takes a lot of fabric, though. I had a small panic moment when the square was just shy of 12.5" in one direction because I didn’t have much white fabric left. A quick survey of the scraps and a few ripped seams later, I was in business.
I thought it looked like a wonky window pane, but when I showed the finished square to Fatty, he said it looked like sky scrapers. I took another look and now, sky scrapers it is. I think it will play nicely with the other blocks that have been finished.
My bag arrived yesterday. Off to finish the laundry. Have a great Monday.
