EASY BLOCK

last night before i went to bed i ventured into the sewing room again and got out this block i have been working on....years ago i backed most of my quilts with poly/cotton fabric so have a lot of scrap from that...well being the frugal person i am i had to find a use for them...so the centers on this quilt will be the poly/cotton...it acts a little wierd when a too warm iron hits it so i didn't want a lot of little things from the poly/cotton so for now i am getting the bigger pieces used...this kind of looks like a signature block so people could sign their name on a block when they visit....just an idea....

i have quite a bit of 1 1/2 inch strips gathered and a lot of fabric that will work if i cut a strip or two....i can get 2 blocks out of one strip so that will be a plus....i already know the back of this quilt will be poly/cotton as i still have 2 bolts of it to use up...it is also going to be one i will donate to the nursing home...i have been working on it when my little scrappy basket get out of hand and i need to do something with the contents....

if i am relaxed enough today i am going to resume my machine quilting...sure wish i had one of those big long arm machines but i dont have the room for it unless i put it in the family room...and that is an idea....the sewing room stuff creeps to the family room anyway lol....

well its time i got busy with anything if i am to get something done today...so have a great week all....more later....
