The unintended consequence of this decision, however, is that I fell like I have less to share on the blog! Bigger projects take longer and the same project photos are really boring.
But having said that, I am happy to report that I did some quick sewing of some blocks for the VMQG block lotto/challenge.
This month, we're doing Japanese X Plus blocks (tutorial here). For every one you make, you get a ticket to win all of the submitted blocks.
Here are my three:
I started cutting the blocks out intending to use the same fabric for all four parts of the X, but then switched it up to make the blocks a bit scrappier. Hopefully when I win all the blocks (ha ha not really that much of a joke because admittedly I have excellent luck when it comes to VMQG door prize and block lotto draws), the fact that the same fabrics appear in all three blocks won't be as noticeable.
Have a happy Monday - I sure am because it's my day off work. And it's sunny (sorry, Winnipeg).
