Latest Project

These blocks are "Mad City Mama" from Leaders and Enders by Bonnie Hunter. This is probably my favorite of her books even though I don't practice the leader/ender method. I have either completed or have as works in progress 9 of the 12 patterns in this book. I have completed variations of Hopscotch and Butterscotch 3 times. If you have read recent blogs then you know I started Mad City Mama to relieve some of the excess in my 1 1/2 inch strip drawer.

I now have 7 of the 16 blocks complete and have barely put a dent in that drawer. I am still making strip sets for the 25 patch so hopefully I will be able to see some relief by the time this project is finished. There won't be much sewing time today but maybe a little the next two morning as I don't go in to work until the afternoon. Speaking of work, we are all celebrating the little ones going back to school today. The last 2 or 3 weeks have been wild at the store, I guess everyone was getting keyed up about the new school year. Hope things will be a little quieter today and maybe I can get all my freight out on time. Wish me luck. Have a good week all.
