The mitred corners blocks for the 365 Challenge were really a challenge for me. I made it my OMG (One Monthly Goal) challenge to
To alleviate the tension in the sewing room, these string blocks started to appear. (as per last week.)
Last month, the RSC's colour was orange and some string blocks turned out orange.
And then, this happened! (For those who followed by blog for a long time, I did do a few string blocks about two years ago as testers. They have joined the newest ones.)
Well, there's no point in stopping now, right? :^D This week, the string blocks turned green,
and that is how a string quilt was started in my sewing room without my consent. (hehehe.)
Somehow, the army of strings on the sewing table managed to construct the 365 Challenge blocks.
Okay, so the last one (bottom right) is not a mitred corner block like on the pattern. It is a HSTs block because I just couldn't rise in the morning knowing I had to face another mitred corner block. (Sorry but I was beyond my limit.) Especially that the block in question had 8 (yes eight! like a spider!) mitred corners.
Aaaahh! I feel better. Which brings me to the block of March 21st.
(Yes, I am exactly TWO months behind!)
And look which block Kathryn chose for that day. YIKES!!
For those of you who don't understand why this is so hair raising for me, let me explain.
Julie from Julie K Quilts called a kind-of-sew-along with log cabin blocks, appropriately called "Log Cabin Lunacy". You pick your colours, layout, and size, and make your blocks when you can, as long as it's log cabin blocks, it's good. The linky party to show our progress is once a month, on the day of the full moon. (You know, luna=moon. Just love this.)
Well, today is the FULL MOON day! (paste sound of a terrified woman screaming here!)
How did Julie knew? OOoooohhh! CreeEEeepy! (So happy we're not in October!!)
Anywho!! I will make a log cabin today. Or two, because this little wee one will not go into my log cabin quilt.
But the next ones will ! They will also be bigger. HA!
These are the fabrics I pulled out so far for the Log Cabin quilt, all from my stash. I'll have to find more light coloured fabrics ... and maybe one other colour? Haven't done a B/W quilt yet.
And I picked the layout too ... but you'll have to wait until the next full moon to see it.
