Business Districts and Bloomin’ Baskets

  My last four Business District blocks for CTS are now done.  I haven’t sewn the two buildings to each other yet because I may switch some of the buildings with some of the other ones I previously made to get some differnt fabric combinations between the two buildings.  So I’ll just leave some of them separate until time to start layout out the whole quilt and I can see how fabric colors are being dispersed across the quilt.  Remember, if you are making this quilt I posted a correction — you need 12 Business District blocks not just 8 as the instructions stated.  I’ve just got Judy’s August block that I need to make so have to go try to decide which fabrics I want to use for that.

I also go busy on some Bloomin’ Basket Swap blocks since there was on the original measly two tester blocks I made up on the design wall.

  There are now four more blocks joining my original two blocks.  I just think they are so cute with those flowered fabrics in the middle of the basket.

Took a break and caught the bus to the grocery store and picked up a few things so now to decide what I want to work on this evening — and figure out what’s for dinner.


A gorgeous day … finally

The heat wave here has hopefully finally ended.  It’s in the 70’s, sunny with a little breeze — I turned off the air and threw open the windows and door.  Yes — this is the weather that I love.

I’ll be headed into the sewing room shortly to get to work.  Several projects waiting — more CTS blocks to make and Bloomin Basket Blocks to make for the swap.  Do you have your swap blocks started?  done? somewhere in the middle?

I got a couple inches on the Om Shanti (Socktopus book) sock done.  I did try it on before working on the cuff and I was amazed that it fit – it had just looked to skinny around the  circumference of the foot.  I need to try it on again tho now that I have some of the cuff done since I hate socks that are tight around my fat ankles.

More coffee, maybe some breakfast, and then off to the sewing room…….
