My Mundane Monday...
How did that happen????!!! Another week, come and gone, already? Really?
This'll be brief. For me. I'm tired and ready to flop down with a movie. I fantasize about curling up with my Kindle and soaking up a new book- but by the time the day is ending- I'm just too pooped to read. That's a fact.
Cute block, huh? Hold your applause- I'm blushing. Aren't I just the bee's knees for figuring out how to get all those stripes in the same direction on the diagonal. Yeah, I'm one smart cookie. Just brilliant. Oh alright, it was 100% accidental and pure coincidence. Maybe all stripes line up like that when you're making quarter square triangles. I have no earthly idea how that happens. But it looks nice, doesn't it? I'm making a table runner for my friend, Angie. Just need to put the sashings and the cornerstones on- then the quilting and the binding. Shouldn't take too long if I can fit it into my schedule.
I've actually been making nubbin blocks, again, after a long sabbatical. My aim is to sew up enough of them to make an entire quilt using only nubbin blocks. No sashing, no borders. I have hundreds and I wonder how close I am to my goal... might need to do a little sewing/joining to get some idea of how many I have- and how many I'll need- to make a queen-sized quilt. Yeah, yeah, I could sit down with a piece of paper and a calculator and figure it all out- but where's the fun in that? The mystery is part of the allure of quilting. The unknown. The suspense. The sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat thrill... Wow, I need a life.
