What do you get when you are able to sit home for 6 days straight while caring for your child that has the flu? Lots of sewing time! When her fever was up, she wanted me to cuddle with her on the couch - but otherwise I was free to be in the next room, taking care of my new obsession, the scrappy trips blocks found on Bonnie's site. I finished 25 blocks and decided to go ahead and make a lap size quilt. It is about 60 inches square and has 900 squares in it! I really like how it turned out.
Unfortunately, I am left with a huge pile of left-over strips - which are still calling my name - but I am going to press onto other projects! I might have to use another of Bonnie's ideas and use the strips as a leader/ender project.
I ordered myself some goodies last week - a small fat-quarter pack of Tula Pink's Salt Water fabric in the blue colorway. Love it! The polka dots on the bottom are from Riley Blake. I also ordered the dots in another blue color and gray. I am planning on using the Salt Water fabric to make myself yet another lap quilt - maybe a Yellow Brick Road pattern - so I can use every last square inch!
