DWM 2-22-1 an
I came home from stitch day Saturday in the mood to do something different. I wanted to do something that would use larger pieces of fabrics and I wanted to use up some of those odd fat quarters that are filling up my fat quarter cabinet. I first tried Bonnie Hunters Lozenges but after a few decided that wasn't for me, at least not now. However I had already cut a bunch of 3.5 x 6.5 pieces and I had pulled a black tone one tone and a white tone one tone. So I tried Bonnie's Bricks and Stones. I got carried away making blocks, plus had misread pattern so I made 4 patches until the black ran out and ended up with 55 blocks.
I didn't really want to put any of that fabric back in the drawer and I had just watched a tutorial on Missouri Star for a quilt she calls Crossroads. So I cut a 2.5 inch strip from those fabrics and have started that one using these same fabrics. I had a charm pack of solid white that I had gotten as a bonus on an order from Missouri Star so I am using that as well.
Got to go to work now, so I will post pictures of stitch day later.
