I had a chance this morning to piece another row of blocks for my calico sampler project.  The bright colors are just what I was envisioning.  Pretty soon I'll need to start thinking about border options, so I can decide whether to work toward a square or a rectangle layout.

And then the food ran out ...

… and they couldn't sit still any longer :)

Stash report - week 24

We've actually been out of town all week.  Upon returning home, I see that comments were left on some of my  postings earlier in the week -- thanks, friends! -- but they were not available to me on my phone because of the Blogger comment changes that took place recently.  I'm back on my laptop now, so I'll try coping tactic #1.   Beginning with this post I'm going to try the "send a comment and follow up to myself".   Sigh.  Blogging continues to become increasingly challenging.

The Reveal

 Carole has released the final clue for her Square Dance mystery.   It was quick work to assemble the units into "Square Dance" blocks and then put them together to make a lap-size top, 48" x 60".   I'll probably add borders to finish things off.  This was a nice use of scraps, and an easy-to-follow sew-along. The top will go into my to-be-quilted pile, and will eventually become a donation quilt.
