Bloglovin has been down a great deal this summer, which means that I do not get informed when one of my blogger friends publishes a post. I don't keep a separate list so I have to find them from people who have commented on my post or posts written by more popular bloggers.
We have been getting a lot of summer thunder storms. The electricity has gone out several times but it comes back after a short time.
This gives me more time to do more quilting. I have been getting better every day after my surgery and today I feel like I can go about life as normal. I will be going back to work on Monday, so I want to catch up on the chores that has been slacking. I kept up with the daily work, but there is much to be done.
2022: 15 Minutes to Stitch Week 29
Quilting wise, this week I was able to finish trimming the half square triangles of the Jazzy Blues quilt. The trimmings are half an inch wide. A sane quilter would think that is the perfect size to throw away. After all, if you sew them together, the entire piece will be hidden in the seam allowance. But if you have been reading my blog for any amount of time, you will know that I have a hard time throwing out fabric like that. I have been making myself throw away the fabric trash in the kitchen trash can to avoid my pulling it out of the trash can but these trimmings aren't going to go any trash can until at least after I make a mini quilt out of these pieces.
Besides the trimming, I also finished sewing this postage stamp / checkerboard block. This is my leader ender project while I make the Jazzy Blues blocks. I now have eight of these blocks.
I also cut the squares for the square in a square block for Jazzy Blues. I made a couple of sample blocks since I am going to try to make them with little or no trimming.
