The small blocks have been assembled into large blocks. Now to decide what width the next round of sashing will be. Three inches is the current front runner.

The initial pieces were cut some time ago and put aside as other things took precedent. I was able to spend some time and assemble the blocks this weekend.
Yes, there are two sizes there. The smaller set is for a coordinated pillow.
The latest quilt top to go under my needle. I am using the new to me 401 to piece it. The first set of blocks is assembled. Three more to go. While I’m stitching I’m considering putting sashing between the blocks.
No work has been done on the mystery quilt in several days as other things have taken our attention. For instance, this past weekend the clouds and fog decided to clear out and give us nice sunny days. Happened last weekend too.
The previous weekend gardening happened with lots of weeding required and adding some color via new flowering plants.
The new annuals were a side effect of seeing them at the hardware store where we acquired fishing line. That with the addition of crimping beads and the bead stash lead to a creative Sunday morning making sun catchers with the munchkin.
Then yesterday after school and while dinner was in the oven, we put together the terrarium using glassware found at the thrift shop along with bought and found sand, shells, twigs and moss. We even added a little live spider plant.
After dinner, I spent some time with my Featherweight and home decor fabric to make a start market bags. One is done except for 1.5″ of stitching which is where my bobbin ran out of thread.
I have enough material for 12 at this size. I am considering making a couple larger. We shall see. There’s even a crochet one in progress.
Somewhere in all of this we’ve also pulled out watercolor paints and played with them.
We have plans for clay, potentially more terrariums (depending on what containers we can find at the thrift shops) and sun catchers and, as always, more quilting & sewing.
