This is actually two projects, the We All Sew Churn Dash and some bow tie blocks I'm making. I was cruising Google Images on my lunch hour the other day, looking at bow tie quilts and came across a wonderful one. Well, many wonderful ones, but this one really caught my eye. I decided that the best way to clear off the solid and bright/floral/geometric scraps that had accumulated on my cutting table would be to make them all into bow tie blocks. Best way, not fastest way.
I'm still working on the hand-quilting of the Churn Dash restoration. I use the blue water erasable pen to mark the Baptist Fan arcs, so I'm ultra-careful to spray them down with water, really soak them through and through, as soon as I get one set of arcs finished. Then I've got some time to wait while it dries so I pick up these other projects. I guess I could go downstairs and clean house or do laundry, but why, really?
I'm off this Friday and next; these are the last of the summer four-day work weeks. I could definitely do this year-round.
My coffee cup appears empty, so I guess I will have to go downstairs. I think I need one of those little Keurigs to keep in the sewing room.
