I was afraid I was going to miss the link up for Let's Book It for March, I had the pictures ready to go, but finding the time to sit and write wasn't happening. My walking partner broke her ankle, yes while we were walking, and I quickly filled that hour of time with other things, now she's back and I'm having trouble squeezing that extra hour out of the day. I'm supposed to be mopping floors and cleaning, people are coming on Sunday, but I work better under pressure :)
For my Let's Book It I used this:
It's from Winter 2013/14
I had been working on a HST quilt, beautiful but by the end I wanted something quick and easy, so I picked this:
I had a fat quarter of bright batiks I wanted to use and thought this would be perfect with all of the white.
It was easy and quick to make and I like how it turned out, BUT the pattern called for 10 inch blocks to start out, then trim to 8 1/2, mine came to 8 1/4, so I ended up with really big trimmings
I won't repeat what I had to say about wasting fabric, use your imagination, but when life gives you scraps you make lemonade or whatever that saying is, so I made more, randomly put them together in a log cabin and make this
I think I like it better than the other quilt.
I hope you're linking up with Let's Book It, it's a nice no pressure way of using what you already have, I like that, no waste :)
Off to mop, that's probably not true, it's a beautiful day here so I think the terrible twins and I need to enjoy it :)
