Mile-a-Minute Number 2


Yesterday I set out to make some more nine patches in different colors. Then I noticed the clothes rack full of strips of different widths and the big bag of small scraps and suddenly Mile-a-Minute seemed like more fun. This morning when I was just getting tired of making them, I checked my parts drawer and found a dozen or so more. This still needs arranging a bit. The ones from the drawer are more log cabin looking with the darks and lights on opposite sides. It's funny that I didn't really notice that until I looked at the picture. Still, I think they will fit in all right if I distribute them properly. I'll put on a black and white inner border and then maybe another row of MAM squares or some piano keys. I found a long strip of them in the parts drawer too. I should check that drawer more often.

Don't you love finding things you forgot about. I have had that happen this week too. Love the MAM quilt blocks. They are going to look great. You sound like me. Always having to sew to keep busy. How many projects to you have going at one time?

Those mile a minute blocks look great. I really do need to dig out my scraps and start playing! As for the Tippy quilt -- just beautiful and I love the trees in the background!

Seems that you had a good day stitching with a quilt as the happy ending.
