Bonnie posted her clue for week two bright and early Friday morning. I haven't felt this much excitement in a while. It makes me feel like a little kid waiting to see what Bonnie has posted.
Friday morning, as I sat looking at the instructions and trying out a block or two, I could hear it icing outside. I knew I was going to be inside for the weekend, which is fine with me. As long as the electricity stayed on, and my children made it home safe, to and from work, that's all that mattered to me!
By Friday afternoon it looked like this at my best friend, Terry's house, and probably my house, too, but I didn't go outside. This is Terry's barn. It looks so sweet with a quilt block mounted on it, and the snow all around.
This weeks units are Chevrons using the green, yellow, and neutral fabrics.
It's that cute little block hanging off of the wall-hanging above my sewing machine
that blends into my wall so I can look at
it while I'm sewing it together so I won't do this:
The yellows aren't supposed to touch.
I spent all day Saturday, in between decorating for Christmas and doing laundry, cutting out all of the squares and rectangles needed to complete the Chevron units for a King size quilt.
I would cut for 30 minutes, and decorate for Christmas for 30 minutes. Or I would cut for 30 minutes and clean for 30 minutes. That way I wasn't spending all of my time decorating for Christmas or cleaning, and I could play in my sewing room, too! I will probably do the same 30 minutes here and there when I'm drawing lines on the backs of my 966 squares with my little tool and mechanical pencil for drawing the diagonal lines.
I haven't finished all of my units for clue 1, but I do plan to use them as "Leaders and Enders" as I'm working on Chevrons. I start out sewing on two of the triangle units, work on about 4 Chevrons, then I finish with two more triangle units.
Thank you for stopping by!
