I've been working on the strip pieced blocks; 27 completed so only 117 to go! The piecing is easy but I want the quilt to be queen bed size so there are many blocks to make.
While I'm sewing and ironing, I try not to eat too much Halloween candy. Most of it is my daughter's haul. We really do live on Main Street, where there are sidewalks, so we get a lot of kids on Halloween, about 250 this year. All I had left was about 8 Reese's peanut butter cups and only had those because it started raining shortly before 8 pm, putting an end to the trick or treating.
On Sunday, I went to my LQS. They had just received the Rouenneries by French General from Moda. I had seen glimpses of this line online and in blogs and thought it looked good. Well, the actual fabric is even better than I expected - absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to make a quilt with it but resisted for the moment, with intention to plan something then go back to buy the exact yardage I need. I'd appreciate any suggestions for a block or pattern that would look particularly good made up in this line.
