For those of you that are Nascar fans you know what "getting loose and hitting the wall" means. For sure a pit stop and sometimes your completely out of the race. Thank goodness I can recover from the little tap that has brought my race to a screeching halt. A quick pit stop for a bolt of Kona White and I'll be back in the race.
75 hummingbird blocks out of 196. The plan can still be on track if I work hard to make up for the lost time. So yesterday evening I switched gears, stitching down the applique on my large house blocks.
Here's whats left of the Kona white scraps. As each Hummingbird block is finished I'm cutting the scraps into 1 inch squares for a leaders and enders mini quilt. The little square container is whats left after cutting the squares. So pretty, maybe I can find a use for them.
The Glorified Nine Patch is on the cutting table nicely folded and waiting in line for more Kona White. This project ruined my ironing station and my mini ironing board. Instead of recovering I decided to try something new. WASHING THEM! I removed the fabric, serged the edges, and threw them in the washer with a bit of bleach. Wondering why I've never done this before. For some reason I've always just thrown out the starch stained fabric cover and bought more. Funny how being to lazy to run into town will make a gal thrifty.
