I had a little panic a few days ago when I realized that I needed to get a birthday card in the mail to my SIL the next day. I didn't have an appropriate card in my stash for her. I had some of the Martian cards but I had already sent one to my brother. One household can't have 2 of the same cards. I had to make something quick.
I walked into the sewing room and saw the stack of bonus HSTs left from the blue bowtie blocks. Since the quilt is for her, it seemed just right to make a card from these little blocks.
I just randomly sewed a bunch of them together. The fact that there's an arrow in the middle is a complete accident.
I didn't want to have to be fussy to try to center the card on the pieced fabric so I took the easy way out and set it totally off kilter. I like it enough that I might make some more of these! It took less than 30 minutes from the moment that I walked into the sewing room.
Yesterday I started quilting some veterans quilts. Today and tomorrow are sewing days with my quilt club. I have a new veterans quilt kit to start and it's very bright colors. I hope you have a great weekend.
