What am I working on?

I had a bag of 1.5" strips of Kaffe fabric that I had cut about 2 years ago. I had the 3" flower squares that I cut out of the waste area on the Big Blooms fabric so I started making some smaller blocks. I laid one of the large blocks on the table so you can see the comparison of size. The large ones finish at 16" and the small ones will be 10.5".I decided to sort all of my Kaffe fabric into stacks of the same print in all the colors that I have. I also filled in a couple more index cards. That took all morning yesterday.

Then in the afternoon my dad had an eye appointment for a regular check up, 2 hours. Later in the afternoon some cousins were going to be nearby so they stopped to visit and asked us out to eat and we were joined by a couple more cousins at the restaurant. My dad's birthday is 8 days away so it was an early celebration for them to be with him. He is the last uncle they have left.

To unwind after I got home I started the small log cabin blocks. I need to cut some more light strips before I can finish them.

You had a really busy day yesterday. Sounds like you all had a great time. I love how you have divided up your Kaffe's and the log cabin blocks are turning out fantastic!

Millie said...

Wow, those blocks are gorgeous! I haven't done a log cabin in years, and your blocks really inspire me!

Even with a lot to do you manage to get some quilt time in! Hope you dinner out with family was nice. Those smaller Kaffe blocks are going to look great.

I guess it's all relative -- those 10" blocks look so small next to teh 16" ones. I really admire your organization and method in how you approach doing this.
Must have been really nice for your father to have all those cousins there!

You are MACHINE, Wanda, a veritable machine!!!! I love those blocks.

I don't blame you.... If I had those GORGEOUS Kaffe Fassett fabrics, I don't think I could put them down! AND they're already cut into strips!

After such a busy day, I am glad that you were able to get a little sewing in.

Debra said...

aww, they look so cute next to their big sisters ;-)

With such a busy day you still found time to stitch. Good for you. I try to do something every day, it's such a good feeling for me to feel productive. I snuck in 15 minutes this morning before work, every bit gets us closer to "finished"

The smaller blocks are just as gorgeous as the big ones!

I am in awe of your fabric (and other) organizational skills ...

So happy for your dad that he had this dinner with family members!

Hi Wanda,
Don't look now but I think your Kaffe strips may be breeding! There seems to be a never-ending supply. The "baby" blocks look great.

As always your selection of fabrics you use to frame those blossoms is magic. SOooo~ pretty.

Family reunions are so special. I'm glad you and your Dad were included.

Are the baby logs going to grow up to be something, or are you just doing them cos you can?
