Design Wall Monday - Daylilies and Legos
The temperature shot back up, putting my string blocks on hold for the moment. It's supposed to hit 102 later this week -- not something I'm looking forward to. The string blocks can wait. Until it cools back down, I'm piecing strips for the Lego quilt and ironing them in quick little bursts.
I can't run the fan and the iron at the same time, so it's forcing me to work a lot more efficiently. Iron a stack of strips, then unplug the iron, plug the fan back in, and trim them down to the right length.
This may be a long term project. Part of me wants to keep digging through the scrap bags and see how much more variety I can add. And part of me is having so much fun piecing the strips together that I don't want to stop and hunt for more fabric...we'll see what happens.
Last week's goals were to quilt and bind the red and white scrappy pinwheels, and to finish picking fabric for the Daylilies blocks. The red and white quilt is done, and I've decided to make the petals completely scrappy instead of fussing so much over the color choices.
This week's goals...I'll just see what I can manage to get done.
