Yesterday I motivated myself to do a little Spring Cleaning even though it looks like this in our backyard:
|This is the bay we live on--Moose Bay.Yes, that's still ice. No Spring here.|
Usually the bay is open well before the rest of the lake,
which typically has ice-out around April 20th.
I will be surprised if the lake is open by MAY 20th!
Well, I guess it's better than this lake view from my room at Quilt Camp.
Several were working on tiny bow ties to make this quilt:
|Charming Bow Ties by Florence Edith Goggin|
from Quilter's Newsletter Magazine May 2000
You need 1,840 bow tie blocks to make this quilt.
|Bow tie components ready to sew together--sweet!|
This one's finished--so cool!
|Isn't it beautiful??|
|It almost has kind of an op-art effect.|
Temecula Quilt Company recently posted here that they will be giving a setting using 1200 to 1500 2" bow tie blocks.
|I'm trying really hard not to get sucked into this....|
|The usual size is cute, but the little ones are really calling my name!|
These little houses were another project a lot of people were working on .
They are from a blog in Holland, Building Houses from Scraps.
Last year, there was a sew along to make one of these tiny houses everyday for a year.
You can get the pattern from her Etsy shop here.
|What is it about little blocks--especially scrappy little blocks?|
|How cute are these?|
|Okay, I did get sucked into these, but only one...so far....|
