This seems to be the story of my life right now.
I begin one thing only to get side tracked by another!
I brought up another bin from the basement and decided to go through it.
In it I found some flannels from when I was a child!
(read really, really vintage here).
There was not too much of any given one so I thought,
why not use the GO cutter and cut out some 5" squares?
Well I will tell you why not, because I don't have that die!
I do have the 3 1/2" tumbler die and that would work too.
I busily cut all the flannels into tumblers.
Like I had ANY business spending my time doing that when I had bee blocks to make
and quilts to make for weddings and any number of "gotta's" to get to but what did I do?
You got it.
Things started out well and I began the bee blocks and then I thought,
I can use those tumblers as leader and enders.
I did begin that way.
Then HEY...shiny bauble look over here ---->>>>happened.
I just started sewing them together and could not stop myself!! Oh well, I went with it. As it turns out, I had a great helper too.
You know you can deposit MUCH more cat hair if you roll all over the quilt as mom makes it!
Do you know how difficult it is to try to sew blocks together with this happening??
Some progress was made.
My goal is to use as much of the vintage flannel as I can and
make the quilt as large as I can without adding any new fabric to it.
After pushing her off the table multiple times
she finally settled for sleeping next to me in the scrap bin.
Silly, silly Autumn!
I hope you stop back tomorrow because I am in the Blog Hop Giveaway a
