I powered through my I Love Lucy churn dash blocks. I love them, but I didn't love making them. Isn't that funny? And that's not entirely true either. I did love putting them together at the end. It was the HSTs, honestly, that did me in. Sewing and then trimming them and pressing them and all that got a bit tedious.
I'm going to lay them out sometime this week (I'm thinking tomorrow when the older kids have piano) and sew them all together by Friday.
Then I sat and stared at my wall of projects, all tucked away in their little bins, all nice and neat. Lots of them are cut and ready to start. But this one almost jumped off the shelf at me:
I bought several Ruby charm packs a while back (back when you could get them!). I planned on making granny square blocks with them. They sat, all ready to go, for far too long. I sorted and sewed and I'm almost done. Just need some more neutral fabric for the last dozen blocks, the sashing, and the border. I'm super excited about this quilt. Going on my bed!
And now my new dilemma. My mother-in-law offered to watch kids for me on my birthday next week so I could have a bit of a break. I'd love to go quilt a quilt. Or two. Or ten. But I need to be realistic. I'll only have a few hours to do it. So I'm thinking it needs to be an all over pattern one. Should it be:
The Scrumptious Scrappy Trip throw
The Blooming Lovely Open Season throw (although I think I'd rather do a custom quilt on this one)
My huge Glamping hexies quilt that I love, that will be backed in hot pink minky (I think I'm a bit obsessed with the Glamping fabric from Moda!):
So, what do you think? It's really between #1 and #2. The scrappy trip would be super fast, as it's smaller. Then again, maybe I can get my mother-in-law to take the morning shift and my husband to take the afternoon shift. That would mean two quilts!
