What a weekend. Friday was a late night - out with friends and enjoying ourselves (except for the mosquitoes). Got home, started sewing, and finished Diamond Plaid Block just as the clock turned from today to tomorrow. Strip piecing is my friend.

Saturday was fun. Not a whole lot of productivity, but I got some stuff done and enjoyed it. Found some Halloween batik fat quarters...exciting for me! Pussy in the Corner is a nice, easy, and simple block to make. I should have fiddled with the spider web fabric a bit more, but it's still a good block.

Then I tried string piecing for the first time. Another enjoyment. Can't wait until I have some time to actually make a whole quilt with these blocks.

The only problem Saturday was that I tried finishing a quilt top too late at night, and put the last 2 sections on backwards. Disgusted, I waited until Sunday morning to rip out the FULL length of quilt seams and resew correctly. Still have to put the borders on to finish the top completely. Did get Flying Shuttles done. Not my favorite block to make, but it turned out nicely.

Today is completely unmemorable. I'm good with that. At least I got today's block - Five Diamonds - done without any problems.
