Day 279

Today I finished all the polaroid blocks I am going to make. I cut into pretty much every piece of fabric I could, and here is the final tally:

That is 207 blocks. Thirty-six of them are duplicates and I will put those in the block lotto at the guild meeting on Thursday to see if I win. Even if I don’t win I think I have enough šŸ˜‰

The right hand picture is all the squares I cut from my stash. Since this year is the year of the stash, everything is game to be used. And since I don’t generally have large pieces of fabric, everything is a scrap. Even most of the white was scraps!

The top left picture is blocks made with fabric I got in May from the birthday charm swap.

The bottom left picture is fabric from my friend Linda. A few weeks ago she let me paw through the scraps in her shop and gifted them to me for my birthday. Those blocks are extra poignant as Linda, my good friend, my quilt mentor, my patron died unexpectedly last week. She will be missed so much.

  1. I am so sorry for the loss of your quilt friend and mentor. I had looked at your wonderful blocks and was just going to write about how fabulous they were until I read all of your post. Heartache is more important to acknowledge than even our beautiful work. Mercy unto you and peace, and love, be multiplied. Jude 1:2 Take care and treasure your memories. from Iowa, USA
