I have been working on a quilt for Spring Market of 2017 with……lots and lots of small half square triangles. Sometimes I needed a little break so I pulled out this pile of flannel remnants leftover from PJs that my neighbor had made.
I got thinking about all the quilts I have ever made and…..I don’t think I have every made a all flannel quilt! I have used flannel on the back of baby quilts but the tops were cotton. I think it just might be time for me to make a flannel quilt.I decided to cut just two different size blocks which were 5 inch squares and 2 ¾ inch squares. First I cut as many 5 inch squares as I can and then the leftovers are cut 2 ¾ inch. I can then sew 4 of the 2 ¾ inch squares together and they will make a 5 inch square.
This is a project that could easily be put in a box and forgotten about so I decided to put the blocks in a drawer right next to my sewing machine. Now when I am working on a quilt or project I can use these blocks as leaders and enders and eventually get them made into a quilt. This works well for me because I always, always like to work on two or three projects at a time…..do you?I am amazed at all the Black Friday deals that have already started! I ordered a new TV for Builder Bob on Thursday from Best Buy and got in on Friday! No charge for shipping either! I also bought myself a new 21 inch Lenovo computer monitor so I can have dual screens. It also came from Best Buy with no shipping charge but….I didn’t get it until Saturday which was okay because I have the box sitting here on the floor next to my computer but…..I am not “allowing” myself to work
play with it until I finish a few things.
Builder/chef Bob is putting a commercial grill/stove in the basement….he is already thinking about breakfast parties this winter with bacon on the grill but there is a problem with it. It doesn’t look like it has ever been cleaned and Builder Bob worked outside for two days cleaning it and just was ready to give up when he thought about a steam cleaner. None of the rental places around here have one but he found one on Amazon…..I think Amazon has everything! Anyway he read the reviews and it can be used a many different things so….a McCulloch Heavy Duty Steam Cleaner should be getting here on Monday. I hope it works!
