Here are the "red blocks" that I mentioned the other day. I was able to wrap these up last Monday and an hour here-n-there during the week. I was actually quite impressed how well the points matched up----I had never done a square-in-a-square before.
This morning, I didn't really have any ambition to work on finishing up the sashing blocks. IN FACT, I printed out My Blue Heaven (NOT Bonnie's MBH) and was going to start cutting blue fabric for Isaac's C'mas gift (son of a friend.) HOWEVER, my conscience kept saying...."don't start YET another project until you finish another......" So, as you can see, I actually DID finish up all the sashing blocks and laid out everything on the downstairs carpet. The sashing squares are about 1/3 done. All the fabric is cut, and the inner square is sewn to the first outer square. They are square-in-a-square also, only MUCH smaller, obviously.
I came upstairs about an hour ago; I just wanted to put my feet up again and was getting a bit tired of sewing. So, rather than beating a dead horse, I just called it quits. DH isn't home yet with the girls, but I expect them soon. Perhaps I'll head back down after the girls are in bed tonight with hopes of finishing up the sashing squares.
