I was going to do a catch-up post, but it started looming on me like one of those elementary back-to-school assignments. (The teachers never accepted "I sat on the couch and watched cartoons all summer.") (Even when it was true.) The only way to make myself stop procrastinating was to just gather a few random pictures, throw them onto the blank screen, and say a word or two.
So here goes.
I seem to have come unstuck from time somewhere in August - my last pictures show a few teal/aqua blocks. Some Antique Tiles -
and a couple of cake stands.
because I don't have any orange blocks for September to show - which is a surprise since orange is always my favorite RSC month!
I lined up my framed stars at some point,
(And does anyone know what this star is really called? I've been calling it framed star for lack of anything better. The newsletter I got the pattern from just called it block 5 or something...)
I started sewing some of my La Passacaglia blocks together. This is a hand-piecing project that is going pretty slowly.
I managed to cut quite a few pieces for Bonnie Hunter's newest Mystery Quilt - Rhododendron Trail -
And I was glad that I'd held off on sewing all those neutral triangles to the HSTs when Sally pointed out the easier way. And then I remembered when Libby taught me a magic way of ending up with a large triangle sewn to the little winged triangle units without actually sewing any triangles, and I got a start with that.
