I've not had a lot of time to spend in my sewing room this week... and I miss it! I have been helping the college Foundation get ready for their annual fundraising dinner - an event I have always enjoyed helping plan and feel honored to be invited back each year to offer assistance wherever they may need it.
What little time I have had I played with some "bitty baskets"... Here is a link to their blog that explains it all. Quiltmaker's Blog
They suggest making 14-18 blocks. These are itty-bitty pieces, folks! The finished block is only 4"... And I only have three done. I still feel strongly that larger pieces/blocks are so much easier... but I am trying to expand my horizons and improve as a quilter. After all, if you can make a 4" block nice and square, the 12" blocks will be all the better. Right?
Ugh! However, on the bright side - The weather professionals are predicting that there is supposed to be a big storm moving in tonight and through the weekend. Which means that I may have plenty of time to work on getting them done... just in time for the next installment of "bitty blocks" in March.
Stay warm and dry! Happy quilting!
