Over the last week, I did some 9 Patch blocks. Oh! Look! They are of the same colors as the 9 Patch blocks for the On Ringo Lake Mystery Quilt by Bonnie K. Hunter. What a coincidence!!
While at was making these blocks, (25 units made) I just had to make some traditional 9 Patch too. (I have a few projects that need some.)
These were my leader / ender to my 365 Challenge block but something happened over night (blame the eggnog) because I suddenly found myself surrounded by geese. Yes, geese!!
So, since all the fabric was already out, I did some of the diamonds. (11 units made) and did eventually located the 365 Challenge block (hugging the eggnog) and was able to finish it.
You may look at it but please don't touch. It is in time out. You see it was on such bad behavior, very naughty, it wanted to have its own way, and grrr! Then the seam ripper broke out a sweat trying to fix it, threads were flying everywhere and, stubborn as it was, it got me using some big words. Grrrr!!! I then had to reach for more eggnog to calm down. /8-}
Fiiiiinallllly, all 109 pieces (in a 6.5 inches block) are aligned correctly. I am so relieved to see that the next block is an easier one with less pieces.
So, for the weekend, since we are still getting the Siberian cold treatment (at one point we had -48 Celsius with the wind factor) I plan to catch up with this Ringo at his lake and sew up a storm. (I hope he has eggnog.) How about you? What's the plan for the last weekend?
