Anyway I met my objectives with this latest cutting project.
- I can get the lid closed on the 2 1/2 inch strips containers and it is neatened up.
- Some pretty stuff that I might be able to coordinate with something else I pulled out of there along with some Oriental fabric strips. I know I tucked a few more someplace---no, I don't know what I am going to do with them.
- I cut for the Faux Log Cabin filling up the pizza box shown on the right.
- I pulled some fall colored strips that I need to foundation piece a few fall colored log cabin blocks for the Friendship Quilter's guild
I also found a stack of these pickets and stuck some strips in the 2 1/2 inch strip container. I am not sure how that block went together exactly but I believe that the light strips formed a star where they met??? This will involve a little research on my part if I am going to share the vision with whomever these bits came from. I am pretty sure my mom has made one of these in the past so I can ask her. I figured the extra angular cut stuff from that roll can become pickets too, should I be so inclined.
ED note: I found the Picket Fence block----on Alex Anderson's Block Party site HERE
I am not planning on sewing today. After all the cutting, my back and shoulders would be happy for a day's break. I think maybe I will start binding my kitty quilt instead.......or redwork.
I'll see how far I get with the Jelly Roll deal tomorrow and can share a picture of Pam's birthday gift too.
