A month or so ago our oldest daughter was rearranging here storage and no longer needed these storage bins. They measure 17” x 13” x 10”, and I thought they would be great in which to store my flimsys. I set them out in my sewing room to remind myself that I need to do some FMQ and not so much piecing for the next few years!!
There are fourteen flimsys stored here plus a couple of backings I already have pieced! And this isn’t all of my flimsys!! 😳😳😳😳😳 Oh well, I’ll get to them some time!!
Here is flimsy I finished a couple of years ago. It was a BOM called “Where Poppies Grow” published by Kansas City Star Quilts. It is a combination of piecing and hand appliqué. I’m thinking this is on my list to get quilted this year! I forgot how much I like it!!
Here is my current piecing project. A simple pink and gray baby girl quilt for a family friend. The baby is due on Sunday! Don’t think I’ll have it finished by then! LOL! I am tickled pink, though, all of these squares came from my stash! I will purchase backing, but at least a little dent in the stash!
I also mentioned in my last post about my current leader/ender project. The randomness of this -
...was a bit overwhelming for me! So one evening I spent about three hours and now the triangle stack looks like this:
And this is how they are going together:
The four hourglass blocks pieced into a 4 1/4” (unfinished) block and since I don’t do “randomness” very well, I decided to piece by color and use light prints for setting squares! Another scrap/stash buster!
I also get my “Myrtle “ therapy most every day and have stitched up some more log cabin blocks. I am stretching myself, as you can see, I have quite the variety of color combos, from traditional coordinating brown tones, to way out wacko brights!!
Hope this finds each of you having a blessed day!!
