I Didn't Forget

I didn't forget about the Dirty Dozen.  I'm still working on last month's little wall hangings.

Three are quilted and ready for binding, which I had needed to buy some fabric for.  So while I was out shopping for that, I found some red fabric to border the littlest banner.  The border is cut and ready for me to add.  Binding is up next.

And August's number is #3 Sophie pillowcases.  These pillowcases are made with the fabric designed by Chez Moi called "Sophie".  Because I had scraps left, I picked this pattern to use:

The band is almost complete!

Finally!  All of the 54-40 or Fight blocks are done.  Whew!

I'm so excited by the progress!  I have finished all the parts to the blocks and assembly has started.

And there was this beautiful sunrise this morning!

Hope you have a special day!

Brilliant Idea

I had a brilliant idea, if I do say so myself.  LOL  It's either that or a smack in the head that I didn't think of it sooner.  Actually, it may be the latter.

So I've been working on making my split HSTs.  

And I've been using some 25 patch blocks as my leaders/enders as I sew these.  But wait!  I could use my block pieces that will make my 54-40 or Fight blocks!  They are to the point that it's like making a nine patch.

That way I have pieces made for the next block and I complete the 54-40 or Fight blocks, making me that much further ahead.  Sometimes....

I've been slowly getting my split HSTs put together.  Slow and steady wins the race.  This quote from Bonnie Hunter inspires me to keep going.

And I'm not stopping!

I've made some progress on my split triangle blocks.  They are a little time consuming, but they are going together nicely.

I bagged up all the units for the block that uses the four patches.  So those are ready for me to sit and sew. 
As I was bagging them.
One step closer to being finished.

It may appear that I'm bouncing all over, but I am doing it in a focused way.  I know, it sounds like that can't be.  I printed out the Habit Tracker from Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts.  I didn't find this tracker until the end of May, so I jumped right in with June. 

Work on UFO 15 minutes/day is for working on a UFO I started in December of 2013, Celtic Solstice.  I finished the 4 patches and have now moved on the Split Triangle Unit.  Had to sew one together as a sample that I cut everything correctly.

So I'll be working at making kits of this block so I can sit and sew, sew, sew!
