Random Notions – A Rather Boring Day

Today I made my first blocks for the Block of the Month group I mentioned yesterday.  These four blocks will be placed a short distance apart in the final quilt.

When choosing fabrics, I decided I would use batiks and hand dyes- I have quite a few pieces in my stash so some blocks may not completely match others, but hopefully they will all be pretty and work together.  I’m sad that I won’t be making another block until February- hope I don’t lose these in the meantime! LOL

That is an Offset Log Cabin block- the log cabin block is a favorite of mine but I have never done one offset before.  Actually, I have only ever done one log cabin quilt before-

This is a small wall hanging I made in ’94.  Right now its push-pinned to the wall (totally wrong way to hang a quilt of course!) above my bed.  Believe it or not, this one was totally finished when I made it!  LOL

Well, it’s been a kind of boring day – didn’t get much accomplished.  Couldn’t make up my mind what I wanted to work on, other than the blocks for the group.  I think it’s better when I decide the night before, so I will do some thinking tonight.

Don’t forget to check in on Saturday for info on my giveaway!
