I signed up for a Chunky Churndash swap on my Quiltville Swap yahoo group. I decided to save on postage so I received all of my blocks once the swap was over, I think there were 3 different swap dates. I of course went straight to Bonnie's book and re-read what I needed. I ended up needing one more block, so off I went to sew the quickie block. I then decided to go searching for the 1/2 square triangles, since I don't have enough to do already Christmas and all. I found this a challenge, since I am on NO BUY through my Stashbusters group, actually finding enough fabric to do the project. I have never really been one to buy large yardages, I am more of a buy a little bit of a lot of stuff. Anywho....I have now sewn 1/2 of my blocks together. I did get side tracked with my RRCB string squares and as leaders/enders I am still sewing my 9 patches together for Sister's 9 patch (which are almost done). I am hoping to get back to those as soon as the strings are done (only have 20 left).
So there you have it, nothing finished but a whole lot started...ohhhhh.....the life of a quilter...
