I wasn’t overly productive last night, but I did manage to finish my first block for the postage stamp quilt. Since I’m participating in this swap of two inch postage stamp squares, I figured I’d better start putting them together. Ta-da…
Please don’t look too closely at the paint peeling off the side of the house. This is our first sunny day in a month so I decided to take advantage of the natural light for a photo.
I’m thinking of putting my blocks together with sashing in a colour like this.
What do you think?
I won a $20 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop from Jen during the Table Topper blog hop which has now been put to good use. I ordered a bit of a darker purple to try out – and I also ordered a Kona colour card so I can check out all the hues.
There are 100 squares in this block and I have 1500 charms currently. With another 500 I can make a double bed size quilt.
It is Christmas Quilt Along day, hosted by Lynn today. I haven’t started any Christmas Quilting yet, but I still have time. DH has gone with a friend to move our sailboat from its current mooring over to nearby. It is a thirty-something trip by water. They may be here tonight, or may stay out overnight. So my evening is my own.
Hope you are all having a lovely summer, or winter, day.
