Still Plugging Along

#sbsi Sunday Results

Somehow, by the time I sat down to watch the Super Bowl (about halfway through the second quarter) my brain had fled, so no hand piecing or hand quilting happened tonight. However, this afternoon I did get the Saturday Sampler block assembled. Here it is: Another thing I did was catch up on my blog …

Progress First Part of #sbsi

I must confess, that I have had a productive two days. I started out the week this week hoping to complete Clue One of Surrounded by Scraps before the next clue is posted. I have not yet completed all the necessary cutting for the quilt, but I have completed the 80 four patches and 80 …
