All those minutes here and there have produced a 50 x 63 quilt top. Even though it used many 2.5″ squares, there are many more where those came from. There may be several scraps blocks in the very near future as the scrap drawers are a bit full.
Just 10 – 15 minutes here and there can make a big difference in a project. Most of these blocks were made with minutes here and there. Here I have laid out the blocks that were on the board in the order that I wanted to sew them.
Then I gathered them into piles with each row kept separate to sew them together.
With just half an hour, I was able to put this strip of pale green down the sides and
here they are waiting on the ironing board to be pressed and cut apart when I have a few more minutes. In this way, I can get much more done, then if I have to set aside a larger space of time.
They are cut apart and are being put back up on the wall, waiting for the next step.
Yesterday the pumpkins were picked and some headed home with daughter and her husband. They don’t look all that big in this photo, but that post is an 8×8. There were 6 large, 6 medium, and 6 small. The plants did a great job of producing some of each.
Today. the hoop house received new skin and the vents were moved down low to better suit our needs. This has been an all day job, with two men working all day, another doing odd jobs and part of the day, I played go-fer.
