I am so glad that most of this week is over. It seemed like I had so many obligations, and while most were fun--it is nice to have a day where I don't have to look at the clock and be somewhere at a certain time. My brain is telling me I should spend it cleaning and doing other chores but my heart wants to quilt (as always.) It is going to be interesting to see what will prevail!
I already did some playing in my sewing room this morning. Check out these blocks. Aren't they gorgeous!!
These blocks took a little while to cut--I dug through my scrap bin for what was there and then I cut some off of fat quarters. I cut 2-3 from each fabric and when I had found as many categories as I could (I think I had all but baby) I then counted them out in piles of 16. I had enough to make 4 cards. It was fun sewing because I didn't have to think about matching anything. The more random--the better. As they call out the types, we will have candy corn to mark them. The last game will be blackout (by tradition--you know when you have to fill your card) and the winner of that gets all the blocks! This may be one time when I don't want to win.... No. I think a quilt made entirely out of all these squares could be amazing! Each participant can play with two cards. I have extra, but I know there will be people who attend who will have not known about it (you had to read the newsletter) or forgotten.
Now that I've made these, part of me is tempted to make another, more "planned" one. I could select coordinating fabrics in as many of the categories as possible and piece them in a pleasing pattern. Hmm. I think it is going to depend on just what I decide to do today.
I hope your day is wonderful!
