Isn't that just a hoot?! Abe had the jitters during Bible study last night- I knew he was sleepy because he missed his nap. Daddy finally settled him in between him and John- no room to wiggle and he was asleep in 60 seconds! Sitting like a big man, of course.
Two gallons of strips...
No, I don't usually measure my fabrics that way, but I had two 1-gallon ziplock bags, filled with strips. All different widths and fabrics- from reproductions to batiks. This is the start of my coin quilt. I have a few more blocks(7.5x10.5") to make, and then I can put it all together with strips of something from the stash- I'm trying real hard to use up what I have. I'm thinking a golden-toned neutral. I foundation pieced them using pages from my telephone book. An old telephone book. I was amazed at how fast it went. I'll treat the kids into pulling off all the paper- funny how the little ones think that is a high time!
Funny thing happened after I decided to not sell the little pocket papers... John had a friend ask for 20... so we did, and he made $3 per book- 50 cents of each sale was mine. Enough to buy more notebooks. It felt good to sew on a quilt again after these little projects. Hope everyone had a great weekend and a non-stressful Monday!!
