WIP Wednesday 7/4/12
We had our barbeque Sunday at my daughter's house. So today all we're doing is hanging out and then watching our city's fireworks' display from our back yard. They set them off not far from us as we live on the south slope of the mountain used for this entertainment. This is a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because it's like having front row seats for this and we don't have to drive anywhere. It's a curse because every year they manage to start a fire on the mountain from some too low bursting firework and then the SHOW really begins. Fortunately, in the 43 years we've been here only once did they tell us to get ready to evacuate. And then we really didn't have to. Phew!
So I bundled strips into 24 sets. I only need 2 strips wof and the red square to make this block. The strips can be any width more than 1 1/2" wide. That's the beauty of the trim tool - you don't have to cut all those rectangles for a log cabin block. Saves a ton of time. If I get it done on time, hope to have a silent auction at our church's Christmas boutique to buy batting for St. Anne's Sewdality quilts. We make baby quilts for low income first time mothers.
Off to assemble the top of one. I'll show you pics later after the shower.
I'm linking to Esther's WOW linky. Do go over and see what other quilters are doing.
