I have had a hard time getting focused on my quilting or just about anything else. Didn't help that my house was hit by lighting and several things, like my computer, were "fried." I'm hoping the local computer guys can save my harddrive...I am pretty good at making backups but still....
Last night I did play in the fabric scraps a bit. One of the quilt-tops I bought at auction a few weeks ago was hanging on the sewing room door. The block pattern is Corn and Beans. I love the fabrics the maker used.
I made a 4-1/2 inch finished block and a 5-1/2 finished block...what a difference a inch can make! After making a dozen of the smaller block I think I would like the larger one better (or is it now that I've done the math I realize just how many of those little blocks I'd need to make!)
Working with the brighter colors is nice right now. Plus it is so scrappy it has to make anyone smile!
