I did need to take some time to clean and do some wash this morning. Before cleaning the house and running an errand, I took time to play a little.
I pieced 8 chain link blocks using 16 different holiday fabrics. These were very easy to piece and make an interesting design. They are pieced totally from 2 1/2" strips to make a 10" finished block. I’m still playing with layout to decide how I want to sew them into a table runner for next Christmas. Here are 2 layouts I’ve tried. I have plenty of time to decide so I’ll wait a bit.
I also pieced another wonky little house that I like better than my first. I also pieced the word LOVE. I want to do some more free pieced words. When I work on crumb blocks I usually like them to finish at 6”. I don't know if I want to try to piece LOVE small enough so that all the letters will fit on the same line and yet still fit in a 6" finish block.
