But not too hot too cut! The parties we had last weekend meant I had to clean up my sewing room so we could stage it for food buffets. I deliberately sorted and stacked and reorganized. Along the way, I came across some gifted UFOs. Since it has been way to hot to sew, trimming blocks to size was the next best way to play with fabric.
These are raw edge bullseye blocks. Luckily the former owner of the blocks included a note that these were to be trimmed to 9". I used my turntable for that.
Lots of yummy tans, blues, plaids, some reds and greens. Then I started cutting them in quarters. I knew I wanted an alternate layout, since diagonal settings are a favorite.
Liking it already! There are only 29 blocks, but the giver included a couple of extra background pieces so I can make more. I could also add borders, of course.
Hope you're staying cool, wherever you are! Today should be the last scorcher of the week. Yesterday when I left work for my walk to the bus, it was 94 degrees at 4:15 in Santa Barbara. Yuck. Today the high is supposed to be 88. We shall see!
