The first couple of weeks of summer are generally a time when I get caught up on all those things that have piled up or fallen by the wayside during the traditionally busy last few weeks of the school year. I really don't like to get behind on block-of-the-month projects, so I couldn't wait for a day to get caught up! First I finished the last 3 FatQuarterShop Designer Mystery Blocks from 2010, and then I did block 1 for the 2011 Designer Mystery quilt. I love them all, and now I can't wait to set together my 2010 quilt!
I made a couple more Farmer's Wife quilt along blocks too--Block 25, Cups & Saucers, and Block 6, Big Dipper, pictured first in my Fig Tree version.
And pictured here in my Flurry version!
I've been staying away from the templates, figuring out the math in some of the block sections with the help of these two amazing rulers, Monique Dillard's Fit to be Quarter ruler and Mini Fit to be Geese ruler. The Fit to be Quarter ruler is a new ruler, and I'll be talking more about it in an upcoming post--I absolutely love it and the range of block sizes you can use it for!
6 Fig Tree blocks, and as Monica says--105 to go! And I really do need to start making some of the blocks that require a template--I don't want to be left with all template-only blocks at the end!
And 6 Flurry blocks--not sure how many of these I'll make--50 maybe? I'll probably make a lap-size version with these! Anyway...it sure feels good to be almost caught up--hopefully by the end of the week I can start on a few things I've had on the list for a little while!
