First off today I worked on my Friday Block Party square for the week.

week23

You’d think that’d be simple but I was math impaired today and never could make exactly the right number of units for any section of the block.

Then I had some extra time and pulled out a project that I just work on now and then. It is the scrappy mini trips around the world. I started laying out the finished blocks and was horrified. It looked like a mess on the living room floor. You couldn’t see the diagonals well at all. I looked at it through the viewfinder and it was much better.

This picture makes it look so much better than it is. This may end up a donation quilt and I’ll just keep the photo that makes it look presentable!

  1. I can definitely see the trips. This quilt has been on my to do list for a long time. I think yours is coming along quite nicely.

  2. I think the quilt looks lovely!!! That’s the great thing about those scrappy quilts, they don’t look TOO planned. Sometimes scrappy is really pretty fun. I like it. I think it’ll be great once it’s all together.

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I’m adding yours to my reading list so I can keep up with your cast of characters which I loved reading about. My cast of characters includes 2 dachshunds, 6 other horses and a bevy of barn cats. I am continually amazed at all the things I find I have in common with many of the quilters that I visit on their blogs. I’ll look forward to visiting your blog regularly.
