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.
