My ambition? Ummmmmm.... I think this is one that I got suckered into way back when.
But, I do enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to make some of the blocks! At least when the mood is right. This afternoon I began figuring out if I did 10 rows of ten instead of 13 x 13. But then I have 6 more squares I don’t want left over.
so, I may go for 11 x 10. Then I need 4 blocks and 16 triangles. Aiming for that for right now.....
need 4 blocks and 16 triangles. Aiming for that for right now.....
certainly seems do-able....at least the end of the tunnel is in sight!
Go with the design that gives you the leftover squares and then use those leftovers for the elegant label on the back.
any leftover blocks could be combined and made into a throw pillow.
After building my thread cover (see separate post) I've now started on the next black & white novelty quilt. If you've missed the explaination, I'm calling them B&W because all the novelties are B&W backgrounds (I'm trying to use up some of that stash). I'm combining them with bright tone on tone blenders. This is the 3rd in the series. It's a disappearing 9 patch pattern. Last time I made this pattern was about 8 years ago (or at least th?at is about how old the little girl is that got the previous version). The next rows are green, then purple, then orange. This one goes together very fast since I'm using the kit I put together a couple of weeks ago. I decided to do an easy one. The next 2 kits are going to take some thought and concentration (which I don't have much of right now)>
I can't wait to see what you will do with the DJ blocks. They are beautiful!
I love the D9P. Very versatile, and people think we're geniuses. Also like your "make a kit" thing too. I started doing that a couple of years ago. They take less room and easy for friends to grab and sew when visiting. I'm trying to use up some of my stash, as right now I'd have to live to 207 to make a dent in it. LOL Ok maybe not quite that long, but close. As I age, I'm less picky about what I keep, and what goes out the door.
Kits w/pattern are just sensible ways to keep up. However, that said, getting them quilted and out the door is another matter. The quilting gets me every time.
Yes, larger AND a tab for a fast Like, Love etc like on FB
The faster you get it sewn up, the sooner you get to buy new. LOL
When I worked for the government, my job never truly provided 8 hrs of real work. I lasted 6 yrs and went back to private industry. I felt like I was robbing the taxpayer. I got a lot of "special" raises, bonus checks etc for streamlining and rewriting job descriptions. I also recommended they cut admin type jobs and hire more fire and air traffic controllers who had the really important jobs. Silly me... They didn't want to lose funding was the real problem. So spend they did.
