I finished one block for my table runner. The block is 12.5″ and let me just say this one is really rewarding to make. I can totally see how an Ocean Waves Quilt suddenly happens, practically makes itself.
Just not here.
I know myself with this. I’ll finish the table runner and that’ll be it for the block. It’ll be closed off in my mind, severed from the list of options. The newness will wear off in the making and because it’s fiddly, I can totally see how my appetite for ocean waves will be no more.
Part of what I enjoy are making those HST’s. I love making big batches, turning tons of them into stacks of HST’s. I just like stacks. Stacks of fabric, stacks of shapes for stacks of blocks. My favorite stack is stacks of quilts with the binding facing the camera. That’s a particular angle I like. The one where the binding of a quilt faces the camera. Anyway, before I make more HST’s and take my HST’s stacks photo, I need to supplement my reds. Last time I made the count it was 140 left to make which means pull more red from my stash.
When I took this photo I realized busy red’s had to be removed so something like the FQ on the top left was pulled out. Ultimately about half the fabrics you see didn’t make the cut. So yeah, back to the stash. When I was there the first time, I checked out the stacks of red bundles and folded reds (that color is organized) but not much worked. I found it difficult to find just those pieces I’m looking for. I’ll give it some time. I have time. Totally slow stitching over here with the wrist/hand pain but I’m enjoying the pace and pleased with the outcomes so far.
In closing, because I think it’s red day, allow me to share what I thought to be a charming, rustic image. I found it at Burlap and Hay .
Thank you so much for visiting! *karendianne.
