I am attempting to get my quilting mojo back. That feeling of being overwhelmed has hit the last few months and the effort to try and do creative things has left me. I am trying to change that.... by pulling fabrics to finish the last 3 pink Squared away blocks today. Well, you can see the trouble I ran into. The helper is holding down the fabric! I confess, I am getting frustrated with the new ruler. It is 6.5 instead of the 6 inches wide I was used to. Let's just say there have been quite a few miss cuts! I know I will get used to it eventually but the learning curve is frustrating.
I am finding it tough to pick the pinks....but will go with what I have as this is a scrappy quilt. My pink stash is lacking........ I guess I have a daughter that prefers red and purple! I'm going to try the magic 8 method to make the half square triangles since I need 8 of the same for this block. Always good to try new things. Here is a shot of the blocks so far.
I have a little time before heading out to walk in the local light up Ocala parade with the girl scout troop. There is no rain in the forecast and the temps are in the 70's so it will be comfortable. I let the boys know they are in charge of dinner tonight. We had pizza last night so we will see what they come up with!
Linking up with the RSC Quilters. See how others are coming along with finishing up some scrappy quilts they have been working on this year.
