I received the 11th pattern for the Moda Blockhead 2 block of the week today. Time has gone by fast this summer. It doesn’t seem possible that I’ve made 11 blocks for this project. This week’s block is 6 1/2″ and very easy to make. It has two flying geese and a border. The border is applied with a partial seam method. You start sewing part way down one of the seams. Then you add the other three. After they are added, you finish the first seam. The block was designed by Sherri Mc Connell. I thought that I would use a stripped pattern for two of the borders. I’m not sure that I like it, but it is done.
I had to go to the grocery store and the laundromat this morning. When I turned the corner onto Main Street, the traffic was stopped. One way only on Main Street. Main Street is under construction. The intersection was all torn up. I had to find my way around it to go to the store and then again to go to the laundromat. Then I went to the gas station that I use when I’m in town and found an empty lot. I don’t know where it went to. Six of the nine dryers were out of order at the laundromat. The sign said that new machines had been ordered. It was a weird morning. I did get my groceries, the laundry is done. I just have to find another gas station for gas. If I didn’t have an adventure, I’d have nothing to say. My ice cream was a bit soft when I got home. It is so good – Giffords toasted coconut ice cream. Giffords is a local Maine ice cream. They have so many wonderful flavors.
Have a great day and happy quilting,
