I worked on a few stem blocks over the weekend, they are sloooooow going.
I've got a ways to go before these blocks look like these blocks.
And it's going to take even longer because starting today I'm going to put Carolina on the back burner and get going on this month's Schnibbles project, Hat Trick. Sometimes, in prior month's Schnibbles sew-alongs, I would wait too long, not giving myself enough time to finish my project (or even start it) and miss out on the fun and the parade. That's not going to happen this month.
I'm thinking it should go pretty fast, twenty 9 patches, some setting blocks, a pieced border, but only on two ends, and I'm done.
It may take longer to pick out my fabric for Hat Trick than to actually piece Hat Trick. I'm not going with any family of fabric, I'm going to pick my fabric from my happy Summer fabric bin. I was originally thinking of going scrappy greens and pinks, but I don't have enough pink.
Whatever I decide it's going to be bright, light, and springy, something to set on my table this time next year.
How are you doing on your Hat Trick? Don't make the same mistake I've made and wait too long and miss out on the fun. For more information on Sinta and Sherri's Another Year of Schnibbles sew-along click here.
