I am very lucky to have such problems, with all the destruction, pain and sorrow, fear and loss happening in the world daily. Grateful my loved ones are safe and well and hope to keep them so, and yours too, dear readers!
Some fabric play did happen, though, continuing to work on pieces stitched on National Sew a Jelly Roll day, which needed to be cut into 2.5" sections for 4 patches for Jewel Box blocks.
I found it easiest to pair up two strip sets RST and cut the subsections, then peel the like pieces apart and match them up. I'd sew up a batch or two of the 4 patches in between cutting, to keep the monotony down.
There are two 4 patches per block, and 64 blocks total for the quilt. Lotta sewing and pressing still to go. Another task was to finish sliver trimming all the HST pairs for the blocks. Look at all the yummy colors...
I used my Block-Lock trimmer to do all 64 pairs. Glad that job is done!
Sunday I watched my grandsons and we had a grand time in the playroom.
Action shot of Cove.
Action shot of Hunter.
Well, I guess with toddlers they are all action shots!
They have gotten a lot of use out of the teepee since I made it for Cove's first birthday. While Hunter napped I tried to get some hand sewing on quilt binding done, but a 3 year old wanted to sit in my lap and investigate everything in my sewing kit multiple times. I may have stitched 12" or so during all this, lol. DH Grant joined us later. Precious times with these little boys, we treasure them.
