what you do on New Years Day.........
First out was my green Bee Tree Designs basket block. I haven't touched this since early November but I have been busy with other things! Normally I drag this with me to the quilt guild meeting but that is going to be out since I am the incoming guild secretary, LOL. I stitched for a little over an hour so get it moved forward a little bit.
Joined at the Hip---#BU2.
I hate working with strips 1 1/2 inch and smaller. The red strip finishes at 1/2 inch. Ugh, fumble fingers territory. I had drawn the sashing sections up in EQ last year so I could more accurately piece it to a foundation. That's the point I was at when I took the picture. Before I quit for the night I had the blocks sashed. The vertical sections are joined and awaiting the band between the block area that says "February". I'll get that part done tomorrow and the borders on the base----maybe the appliqued basted and/or fused. I prepped all that last year.
All in all, a productive day---
