So yesterday I sewed for a while.....
.....then cut and pressed and trimmed my half-square-triangles for a while.
This is one of my favorite quilting notions. It's a lot easier and much faster to separate chain-piecing using this tool instead of scissors. I want to get another one for my "packed and ready to go to retreat" sewing basket, but I can't remember who makes it or what it's called. If you know where I can find one, leave a comment......Please!
Then I made blocks for a while. I'm using all batiks in this quilt so I'm enjoying watching it come together. I have almost half the blocks made and most of the sashing cut.
It took a good snow storm to get me to sit down long enough to make this much progress, but hopefully, now that I've made a good start on it, I can finish it without the threat of being housebound! I think I'll stay motivated since I have a deadline, and because it's for a good cause. I'm donating it as a silent auction item to the St. Baldrick's Event which benefits childhood cancer research.
