Don't you just love those days where you get a lot accomplished in sewing and finishing up work !!
I actually began to put together the first blocks in my Irish Chain Twist Quilt-A-Long quilt.
|Sewing along happily with Melissa at Happy Quilting|
I am making a lap size quilt. The size will be 60" x 70 ".

They are : A FQ Bundle of This 'N That by Nancy Halvorsen by Benartex
( am so glad that I waited for "THE right project" to come along, to use this lovely gift bundle!)
For the backing- I will use 4 other fq left from the bundle, plus some Lazy Day (by Riley Blake) floral fabric, and some yellow Michael Miller stash fabrics. It will pieced ... for a fun look.

|I was happy as a clam, after cutting out all of the blocks for a lap size quilt!|
Last week, we began to make the X Improvisational block units.
|I am in love with these aqua fabrics!|
|84 blocks , saying to me.... "Well here I am! Ready for you to sew !"|
And then, this week... after some trimming , and being "wonky" cut on purpose...
|Now they are 21 Improvisational X Blocks|
|Some blocks are wonkier than others! All of them make me happy!|
Now, I have a cold and wintery Saturday to sew, and have to wait until next Thursday to work on the Twists on Tradition blocks!

In case you were wondering....
Yes, I did have to use my seam ripper AGAIN!
But only for turning around two HST's this time. I must be HST dyslexic.
