One nice by-product of Paul starting so early on their new job is that it also gets me out of bed nice-n-early. His alarm tolls at 5:10AM, and I have been rolling out around 5:30AM to make coffee and send him off to his work. This morning, I was downstairs shortly after 6:00AM to finish piecing the additional prepped Starstruck blocks. My total stands at 52 right now..... that's not really a nice multiple for a quilter.
So....my options: make 4 more blocks to allow for a 7x8 layout (approx. 56x64 with no borders or sashing) OR make 11 more for a 7x9 layout (approx. 56x72).
Those options will be mulled over during my 5-hour drive to my sister's house. For now, the Bernina was carefully packed up, and three projects neatly organized in some totes/shoe boxes. Three doesn't seem too ambitious for a 4-day stay, does it?
- Starstruck 2.5" strips packed for more blocks - in BLUE (and neutral)
- Pineapple Blossoms prepped units were packed for piecing - totally SCRAPPY
- Jamestown Landing units were packed at my L/E project - in BLUE (my broken dish blocks are almost completed--ALL leader-ender created)
Happy Tuesday everyone!
