Welcome! A big thank you to Carol who is hosting this wonderful blog hop!
Grab a cup of coffee or tea if that’s the way you like it. There is sugar somewhere around here, and the way my kids go through milk, there is probably a fresh gallon we just bought this morning in the fridge. I would say grab a seat and put your feet up, but most of the chairs still have boxes on them and they aren’t quite unpacked yet. Yep, unpacking in this neck of the city is still going on. And of course, wouldn’t you know it, we are down to one car!!!
Between getting the girls into their new schools and accommodated, and driving my husband back and forth to his job, unpacking and cleaning…there isn’t much time to sew. Or to even unpack much of my sewing stuff completely. I found this cute little easy 12 inch quilt block that I was intending on finishing today. I tried to pick scraps of fabric that kind of resembled our house. Yes, our door is red, there are white curtains in the front windows. Since it is the beginning of fall, I refuse to plant anything in the front yard, so it looks as bare as the black I used for the ground. We don’t have a chimney and the roof is black….for now. I hear flyover state winters can be harsh.
I did get the fabrics cut though, that’s a big step in the right direction….I will get it done tomorrow and post it, I swear! It will look a lot better than the way I laid it out. I found the pattern for free over at The Spruce Crafts.
This looks like an awesomely easy 12 inch square, easy enough for even a beginner to do, and big enough to make a dozen or so and a nice size lap quilt out of.
So come back on Saturday and see what that bunch of blocks turns into! It’s magic what we do. 🙂
