Just talked with daughter. The project is changing from a large throw for the living room to 2 twin spreds. Only need more of one fabric.

petthefabric: Here’s a hand up. I’m glad you only need to get one more fabric with the decision to go from one quilt to 2.

WMUTeach: Way to go! You used fabric and helped your friend. ❤️ The Beatrix Potter fabric looks familiar. I know I didn’t buy it but it may have been in a church fabric donation,

A falling here...decided to get some sale fabric at LQS...finish the on sale fabric is 45% off so finished one bold (5 1/2 yds) and about the same from another...blue florals on cream background. Then when I went to nearby town for tax appointment stopped at that shop...FQ's 11-20 for 1.75 each..stopped at 11. I bought 2 1.5 pieces for a cow baby quilt...sweet little brown and white cows from Bunnies at the Bay. Hope to use that in a donation quilt.

Meanwhile at the sewing machine the 6" star quilt is pieced in strips; next to sew the strips together and add borders. Refuse to let it become a UFO! In between the 9P's are getting sewn; I need 224 and have 120 done...over half done! Yes blocks all from scraps and stash.

Of course the world is ending. I can't speak for anyone else but certain episodes of old tv shows hit differently now. Madame Secretary had one about the measles. Mash they all had a flu epidemic. Barney Miller had something else.....it just hits differently now - ya know.

And for the Broadway fans ; Hamilton "World Turned Upside Down"

If you're going to fall, 45% off is a good time to do it!

This post refers back to #226. Got the blocks made with lots left over. So one throw becomes 2 twins with wide boders (out of one of the fabrics). Wanted to let you see the blocks before manipulating them and adding borders. The pattern is "Woven Shirts" from the book pictured. I think it'll be called "Bow Ties".

Daughter has seen the blocks, likes them and changing to twin.
