Since I have fabric pieces everywhere, I continued on making more birds and adding some butterflies for a baby quilt for my granddaughter to be. I need to make some beefier butterflies and a couple more birds. Then I will try to assemble the front.
I have been sewing 1 1/2" squares as Leader/Enders that I cut when I made the Snail's Trail wall quilt. I continued making 4 patches and it is time to figure out what to do with them. I remember the Scrap Jar Stars Quilt pattern I saved. I made a block with the 1 1/2" squares 4 patches (8" finished). I like it but it is a lot of sewing. I would have to make 56 of them to be big enough for a comfort quilt. That is a lot.Among all the chaotic fabric and various machines, Tugger decides to make his bed on the Snails Trail Quilt awaiting the last binding stitching on the Singer 15.
So, I pulled out the box of 2" squares, which is what the pattern uses and made a block (12" finished). It is not as cozy as the smaller one, but would need less blocks to be sewn. Hmm.
