With the ending of this year I’m taking stock of what I have accumulated for future projects. My favorite size block is 8 inches finished. I don’t like working on very small things, partly because I have difficulty doing handwork, so everything I do is done by machine. I also have done lots of projects using pre-cuts, so the 2 1/2 inch size and multiples of that work best.
I collected all my finished blocks and set them out to see what I’ve got.
These are the ones that are calling my name. The majority are improv blocks, which I do love to make. Along with some stars I have about 25 eight-inch blocks. i’m thinking about framing them in white or gray sashing. The little houses will have to wait for another day.
I don’t have very many UFOs because I have finished those that I’m able to give to charity. Of course, this is not talking about my stash yet. I’ve been able to whittle it down quite a bit. However two days ago a friend was given some donated fabrics and I was there when I was able to pick some out for myself.
The two lengths of floral fabric are each about 60 inches. I just love the luscious flowers. The dark green with tiny crosses is about 4 yards long. This will have to be a special quilt, something I’ll be thinking of for the new year.
We have had some very early snow, 11 inches so far this year. With snow on the ground, then on sunny days all the heat is reflected back upwards and the temps are lower. But it’s lovely to look out at the snow, great quilting weather.
