I’ve been planning a stay at home retreat for the holiday weekend and I got an early start. Keith and I decided to come home early so I jumped right in pulling blues from my scrap bin. I’m not trying to be real matchy matchy but I am picking and choosing which blues I’m going to use. That bin is still pretty full isn’t it?
After the blues, I pulled some neutrals and reds.
I’m finally ready to try out the BlueWren die I bought a couple months ago. It’s a 6 inch finished quarter square triangle die and it was way cheaper even with international shipping than having a custom die made. So far I’m really happy with how the die is performing although the mat does curve with each pass, they tell you that is a good way to remind you to flip the mat over and use the other side and it is.
I didn’t intend to put a border on this hourglass quilt but I’d forgotten I had some fabric with states printed on it … now I just need to decide whether to use the blue or red state fabric and finish making the blocks too!
And as an added bonus, Stephanie just announced that December’s precut is triangles … so this one will be my project for our Precut Party!
Are you sewing this holiday week? What will you be working on?
