Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks - Another Soldier Star Update
I got a little distracted from working on this quilt top because I started sorting and cutting up my scraps. Let's just say that I don't think I will ever get that job finished. I am a little ADD when it comes to working on them - who can stay focussed on such a boring task. Not only that, I thought I was done but then I moved another pile of fabric and lo and behold there was another huge pile of scraps hidden underneath. I will try to whittle away at that pile over time but I guess I will just have to make the effort of dealing with my scraps as I make them so that I don't have to face such an overwhelming task!
My design wall is almost full and I still need to make 15 more blocks. I think I am spreading the ADD around because even though I need to make more blocks for this quilt I am already thinking about how the leftovers from this quilt would look in some kind of 9-patch pattern. For now, I need to get cracking on those last 15 blocks. I have just about everything prepared and ready to be cut or sewn together - I just have to get it done.
