A few hours after sending her the info I started to second guess myself and my speedily drafted block detail. I figured that I should just make a block using my numbers just to be sure.
TA DA, my numbers worked and my start to this hops contribution was on it's way totally by chance. I looked at the block for a while and wondered what I was going to do with yet another stray block. At this point it was still a block in my head, not yet a square.
I don't think I thought square until I looked at the graphed version again. That's when the idea to make it the center of a table topper for the summer hit me.
I looked at this larger square for awhile and decided that it wasn't going to fit anywhere in my house and most all of my friends and family already have RWB table toppers or runners already.
Well why not just go bigger. I love how it came out. It's a 48 inch Square.
It was one of the easiest quilts I've ever put together and it was all from my stash. I will probably do it again but looking at it in this finished state I would probably add a 2 inch border using the background fabric to make it float a bit before the binding.
Next up is what looks like what will be a very long term project. While routing around my garage I discovered several bins of scraps. I opened one and discovered lots of strings of various widths.
I pulled a couple of handfuls
trimmed the pieces down to 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide
Then I started a new long term project of crocheting a square . I have no idea what my goal here is but this is what happens to your mind when you are on shut down.
This is how far those 2 handfuls got me. OK it's not exactly square but close enough for a mindless project. I measure it currently at about 17 inches give or take. It counts for this hop right? And in the end that's all that matters.
At this point I want to thank Miss Carol from Just Let Me Quilt for hosting this hop and thanks to all of the hoppers for giving us some fun stuff to focus on during this lock down. Here is a list of all of the players. It will so brighten your day and theirs if you drop by check out their projects and leave a sweet note.
