Good Morning All! Rippit! Rippit! That's what I've been doing!!! I'm making a "come back" with the quilting, but some things just never change! LOL! When you are piecing a block and you make a wrong cut, well, you know the song.... Rippit! Rippit! At least it was just about 1/16th wrong so I was able to make the blocks work.
My LQS -- which I recently discovered! And did I tell you it is ONLY 20 minutes from my front door to theirs??? Very dangerous! Back to the LQS -- they have a block lottery each month. The shop sells packets of fabric for $5 and it contains 4 fabrics to use in any type of 12-inch block you wish to make. Actually, I think it is a good marketing strategy -- gets people in the store and, hey, who doesn't want to win something! Now, I'm not doing this because I need another UFO!! Heavens NO.....I have boxes of them in storage that, hopefully, one day I'll get unpacked! It's just a fun little thing and hopefully my blocks will bless the lucky winner!
I picked up the June packet and have made my blocks -- sorry, I failed to take a picture. The fabric was very bright! Why, I thought I'd have to wear sunglasses! It was neon orange, yellow, pink, etc. -- really cute!!!
The July blocks will be Christmas. Here is a pic of the two blocks (on my 'make shift design wall') that I will enter. I'll let you know if I win.
I hope you enjoyed this little tidbit about my LQS -- Country Living Quilts. They are tucked away in the country.
