I have too many... or do I? The extras will work perfectly in my GO Four It Quilt that I started as a leader/ender project.
With the Accuquilt way, it starts with some scraps that are cranked into neat strips.
I already had a lot of neutrals in my bins for my scrap saver's system.
I pulled them out and sewed them together. Gotta love Accuquilt products! I took Bonnie's advice and subcut the sections. I drew lines with one of my mother-in-law's sharpies from her drawer. (She passed away a couple of years ago and left me all of her sewing things. She was an amazing seamstress.) It was nice to remember her and "visit with her memories" as part of the quilting process. I lined up my strips and cranked them through...
And just like that, there was a big bag of lovely sets of red and neutral "twosies". The thing about this is that I don't know if I have enough or too many... I didn't count them. Tune in to my blog to find out. I know with red/neutral four patches that I can't go wrong. If there are too many, I'll simply use them in another quilt.
While I was playing in my quilt room. My husband was playing bow and arrow with our son. Our son started to get quite good at it! :)
It was also nice and sunny today, but brisk in the 40's. It was a good day to put straw in the dog and cat boxes and clean the barn and chicken areas.
It's always nice to have a helper!
