Yippee!! I've finished all my little square donuts for the Fat Quarterly Quilt Along! I just love the feeling of sewing that final seam of the last block!! Knowing they're all finished and you're ready to move onto laying them all out. It makes me want to do a little touch down dance!! Yay!!
I'd been a little on the generous side when cutting my strips. I ended up with 188 blocks so I made a few extra to get me to 196. The right amount for a quilt of 14x 14 rows and therefore 84inches square. My fingers are in knots after doing those calculations!
Some of my strips were longer than others and gave me an extra square here or there and I found a few more in my scrap bag and made some little 9 patches. I'm thinking I might scatter a few through the quilt, just for interest's sake. I'll see when I lay it out... Maybe there'll be enough interest with all the crazy fabrics and the uniform look with suit the overall feel better... hmm ..we'll see.
I have to say these blocks have been a dream to sew! Easy peasy and so effective. They've come together in a flash so it's been a great sense of achievement. I'm reminded of prayer flags as I chain piece.
so I mutter a little prayer that my little pieces will work wonderfully together.
I'd just finished when the gong rang for lunch. Zucchini flowers stuffed with marinated feta. I don't make all these food things up, truely! I'm thinking I should start another blog called "The Delicious Things GBF Cooks". He's planning Seared Scallops in a Salmon XO Sauce for dinner, Beef Massaman Curry for tomorow. I'm so lucky! The Zucchini flowers were definitely delish, she says licking her fingers. ( not like Clair from Tea n Bickies)
The sound of Green Sleeves floated through the windows.. The ice cream truck!!! I managed to resist but the little girls next door each got a big snowy topped cone.
It was all just like one of my favourite Heather Ross Munki Munki fabrics.
