It's been another busy week for me.
I haven't had time to do much sewing, but I continue to work on stuff a little bit at a time.
I'm almost done all the blocks for my Idaho square dance quilt. I will try to get a picture of the progress soon.
I've also prepped some blue spool blocks for sewing as part of my July Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I have continued to work on my scrappy star blocks made from the kite shape. This is going to be a table runner for my formal dining table. I wanted something that reflected my scrappy style. I'm hand piecing these blocks. I'm not using papers or anything like that. I'm using a template that I trace around to cut all the pieces with scissors. Then I eyeball a 1/4 inch seam allowance as I hand stitch them together. It's very soothing to sew this way, and it's portable too. I just carry a ziplock bag with my supplies wherever I go.
This is what I have sewn together so far.
It has not been ironed yet, so it looks lumpy. But it's going to be gorgeous when it's all done. I haven't decided how long I'm going to make it yet. It will have at least 4 full stars, but I might make it five long. I'm not sure yet.
I hope you like my scrappy start of my table runner.
