I began making a tossed nine-patch for my bedroom from charm packs I'd picked up on sale during a recent shop hop. At the same time, I decided to work on a scrap quilt for the spare bedroom. I've been going back and forth. I want to get the nine-patch done, but there's something very satisfying about cutting and sewing all those 2 inch squares together. I also took a break one morning to create the disappearing 4-patch in red-white-blue for the OMQG June block of the month. I thought that would be easy, but apparently I either can't sew a scant 1/4 inch seam, or can't cut accurately or both, because it took 3 tries before I finally got one to come out the right size. From now on I'll just make all blocks too big and cut them down.
Time is flying by while I quilt. So much to quilt - so little time. Maybe I'll do this every June.
