Quilty Quarters

I'm sure you won't be surprised to know that I am having a very tough time concentrating on any stitchy-ness. My mind is so full of shop stuff that I can't settle at any of the sewing machines. Yesterday, Sunday, I was told to "Go Sew"... so I did, I pulled out the drawer full of 2 1/2" strips and started to sew them together with no plan at all. Recently I had watched this video clip 
I thought it looked rather clever, that's what I made with my strip sets... Cut blocks 10" wide, put 2 together, stitched them all round the edges then sliced em up. The downside though, all the edges are bias... yuk! I'll use this little quilt top to practice free motion quilting I think, one day... or I might make more blocks or I might think of another plan... for now thay will sit there on my design wall while I do more Angie's Patchwork & Quilting Shop preparation... Today it's the wood guys making shelves, more fabric will be delivered and there's an appointment with a money man to attend.... Hey Ho

Lovely. I really like the way that the squares on point seem to appear and then disappear. Hope the shop preparation is going well.

I really like that - it looks so well planned - see how clever you are. Good luck with the shop - when is it due to open? xx
