We spent Sunday afternoon gathering items for Jo’s Store for my Retreat next weekend, there are piles at the studio waiting to be hauled Thursday afternoon to the Kimmel Center.  Can hardly wait!

In the meantime, on a recent Sewing Saturday, we cut and sewed some of these:

Inspired by this block in an antique quilt top I own.  You may recognize the large squares as one of the pieces in ‘Toasty’ but colored slightly different.

So, now I have five of these blocks below, and don’t know how to set them!  I’ve tried a few things and none of them talk to me.  Set them straight tried several alternate block fabrics, didn’t like or love any of them.  Set them on-point with a narrow sashing, was better, but didn’t like any of the setting triangle fabrics I auditioned.  Big sigh.

So these blocks will rest in a project bag for a while until I get inspired to try something else, or make more of them?  Any ideas to help me???

Have a great Monday – hope you find some sewing or stitching time.  I get office time today.


Monday! — 1 Comment
