The other day I cut strips from an April Showers layer cake that I had.
Yeah, I know there had to be a better way to do this, but I wanted to JUST SEW SOMETHING!
So, on that same day, I sewed the strips into groups of 5 or 6, I don’t remember, okay? Then I sewed those “blocks” together in a group of seven.
Yes, they’re taller than I am.
My plan is to alternate 5″ light colored strips in between the long, long blocks.
Since I have a plan, I put it aside.
Today I sewed some other strips together for a baby quilt. Here are the leftovers.
I’m actually going to use them on the back, for interest. Cool, right?
Then I noticed I still had some of those original already cut April Showers 10″ strips laying about. So much green though! And aqua and then another sort of green and light teal.
So I sorted through what was left and made piles.
Green. And not green.
And I sewed them together making the cutest little four patches in the world.
Finally all I had left was the dreaded greens. So they now live in a pile I use for cutting mini tumblers and some other shape that I don’t know what it’s called. (Don’t worry, they will be very happy there.)
So I had 22 four patch cutie blocks.
I played around with them for a while, finally deciding on a nice layout for a table runner. Here it is.
I’m sure this will be a gift at some point this spring. Maybe you are noticing the green-ness and wonder what my problem is.
I don’t know what to tell you, friend. Green has never been my thing. I use it because mostly it’s necessary.
When we look at the color wheel, and I find the pink (which is my fave) the green is the complimentary color. And I LOVE THE PINK.
So I use the green.
But that’s not what this blog was going to be about. I was saying that I like working on one thing for a while, then another, and then another.
Eventually the projects will be completed.
Right after I start another one.
