This morning these lovely green and blue pieces of my sea glass fabrics
were all over my cutting table.
I briefly considered putting these away for another day
and'sewing scraps for my usual scrappy Saturday.
I briefly considered going into my quilting room to quilt.
Then I went outside where the sun was shining and did not get back to
making my quilty decision until after dark.
It was a lovely day outside and we did yard work,
ran errands, lunched out and just sat and enjoyed the yard as much as possible.
Here is Block 2
This evening I just picked up the sea glass pieces and pieced out.
Because I opted not to cut the centers of my star,
I am devising my own construction method.
I discovered I needed to do this after I sewed
So my seam ripper and I had a fun time taking off the bottom row of this block
and sewing it into the center strip instead.
Here is one side of my quilt and the center strip.
The last two corners should go together quickly now.
I am actually ahead on this quiltalong.
My top will be together soon.
Perhaps tomorrow ~ perhaps not.
I am feeling the pull of the tides as I sew these blocks.
Maybe it might be a good weekend to answer the call of the sea
and take a walk on the sand and look for real beach glass and eat seafood on a dock.
That is something we have done many a Memorial Day Weekend.
May you enjoy your long weekend, too.
