I only had a few hours of crafting yesterday. I had to go to my brother's to get him to trim some hinges for me. Our cabinets have some really cheap hinges that break regularly. It's not a problem, I have a bag of replacement hinges and they are easy to replace, except on the bathroom cabinets. It seems that the cabinet maker trimmed the edge of the hinges so they would fit around the inside trim. My brother makes knives and axes so had a lot of really cool tools. He was able to trim 4 of them for me in just a few minutes. Now I have a stash of 3 for the bathroom cabinet. After that was accomplished and my cabinet door reinstalled, I got down to some sewing.
I gathered the blocks off the floor and stacked them with my favorite clips. I remember when these came out and I thought they were a gimmick. I try to stay away from new sewing tools but I did eventually get some of these and I use them all the time. I love them.
I got all of the blocks sewn together but they still need pressing.
This will give you an idea of what the border will look like. I think it's a really cool quilt and I'd consider making another. It's a perfect pattern for monochromatic scraps. The one in the book is in pinks.
This weekend is all about preparing for our trip Sunday. Next week I expect that I may only have my Audiobook and January summary posts. I might have a weekend summary post Monday if I actually do anything blog worthy. Otherwise, will not be posting daily on vacation. I'll see you February 5th!
