I set the goal on The Evil Monkeys’ wall hanging of making one block per day . So far I’m only two days behind, which I think you’ll agree is astonishingly good if you know me at all. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to sew something colorful that doesn’t require, you know, the ability to think coherently for more than ten minutes at a time. Saying that, I haven’t really been thinking very hard about the fabric combinations, other than to sort of generally have an even mixture of lights and darks… It’s possible the lack of thought used in this project could show badly when I’m done.
I have worked out the setting I want to do (I think) and it only requires 24 blocks… so I’m more than a third of the way there. Of course, then there are the border blocks… but they’re just straight lines, I should be able to whip up two or three in the time it takes to do one of these curved blocks.
It’s a theory. Go with it.
Blocks 2-9. This is going to be one busy quilt:
TLo has decided that this is the “Lemonade Mouth Quilt”, because the (slightly nauseating) Disney movie “Lemonade Mouth” is her current favorite highschool-kids-dancing-around-and-singing-for-the-purpose-of-overcoming-injustice-and-unpopularity movie.
As opposed to Star Wars… which is just her OBSESSION. (On the plus side, we no longer have to worry about what will happen when she doesn’t get her letter to Hogwarts in 3 years.)
