This morning I packed away the star blocks until another time. I like these 4 together and think it would be fun to make the quilt with many different kinds and sizes from the same fabric.
Then I started cleaning and organizing. I found another UFO. I don’t remember when ( several years ago) Diane S Hire spoke at QSC’s spring meeting and taught a workshop. The workshop was process oriented instead of project oriented so I came away with pieces. This may have been my first exposure to improvisational piecing. From the pieces I pulled out I only needed to sew one seam and was able to square up 2 blocks at 12 ½”. I just noticed that I have not added the cross pieces on it but I’m sure I can do that later. Diane called them Tic-Tack-Toe 4-Patch blocks. I found 2 tails and a piece of “Hopscotch” which she suggested for a border or run. Now my pieces are neatly pressed and in a new container with the class handout and some fabric pieces. Maybe some day I will find a project into which I can insert these pieces.
