I missed out on the Super Blue Blood Moon event last night, being unwilling to sacrifice any welcomed moments of sleep. I know this is a rare event, but I'm sure my parents were out looking at the moon and will tell me all about it!
Today is the release of the last block for the Moda Blockheads quilt. You must hop over to see Wendy's finished quilt - click here. Yes... finished! She uses a "potholder" method of making quilts so her quilt is already finished!
My Blockheads quilt is 8 blocks short as of today. I'll work on it this weekend as my friend Louise is coming for our annual quilting retreat. We will talk and quilt, and talk and quilt, get some Indian takeout food, and talk and quilt, and maybe sleep a little. It will be fabulous!
In the meantime, I got completely distracted in the sewing room... squirrel!
Distraction happened because I was sewing the On Ringo Lake blocks together and it is hard sewing these blocks together without sashing. Then I noticed the lovely gold scraps in the scrap bin and thought of my Omigosh project. And wanting something easier to sew, I started making some blocks. Tada... easy peasy 5" Omigosh blocks! Two double nine patch and two shoofly variation blocks to add to the pile. They are so adorable and made mostly from 1" strips. Now, what was I supposed to be doing?!?
