Just when the variety of reds in my stash has dwindled to a thread, I answer the doorbell to find a surprise packet of reds and blues. Some were already cut into strips - how perfect! What fun it is to go through fabrics from another's stash.
My blocks were quickly finished, and I began removing the paper. It wasn't such a task really since the television provided lots of entertainment. I watched Paul McCartney sing for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll's Diamond Jubilee celebration, as well as the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. To cut down on mess, I put the blocks inside a recycling bag to remove the paper.
Now I will stitch around the perimeter of each of the blocks to ensure that my seams are secure.
Thank you, Lesley; your timely infusion of fabric has allowed my project to stay on track. The sisterhood of quilters is truly amazing.
