I have been diligently working on my Lists. UFO being one and just my Monthly “To Do” list. It’s April and I just finished January’s To Do List. It’s progress. I had quite a bit on January’s list, in my defense. But it is now check marked and I have moved on to February. To my surprise I have already completed a couple a things on that list and it’s not as lengthy as January’s. I might just get caught up. Wait, no I won’t. I have started several new BOM’s to add to my Monthly To Do Lists. But you know it’s okay. I’m having the time of my life. I am learning new techniques and making new friends. We can all welcome new friends. Each new person in my life just adds more perspective to me. Enjoying my life!
Here is what is currently under my needle.
Block # 7 of A Boy and A Girl – prepped and ready to hand applique.
Working on prepping Block # 8 of a Boy & a Girl –
I did get 5 circles completed this a.m. before heading to work. I have about 12 more to make.
Now my new BOM’s. I signed up for Long Time Gone by Jen Kingwell. She is an awesome designer from Australia. Check her out. i have completed Month 1 and have just received Month 2. I haven’t started it yet. Month one is half square triangles and 60 degree angle blocks. Here are my blocks
My half square blocks are consistently square. I am very impressed. I tried this new Block Loc ruler for my half square blocks. I’m sold on the technique. If you have not tried it watch a you tube video on it or have you local quilt shop demonstrate it. My grid above is 7 x5 – 2.5 ” squares. Notice that it is actually a rectangle. Usually mine are wavy. Yes, I will be using this ruler again. They also have a flying geese one and are developing a pineapple block ruler. Now, that I want to see. I can only paper piece pineapple blocks. Learning new tricks.
