Another block of Safe Haven...

I've been working on Christmas gifts, embroidering a few things, making lists, checking them twice.... you know the drill. :)

While my embroidery machine was working on a tea towel, I was working on a block for Safe Haven.

I knew something was wrong with this block before I pressed this portion.... duh!

This is much better.

And here's the whole block. These blocks are 20 inches square, which seems ginormous after a week's worth of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks!!

I have lots of left overs each month. This BOM is several years old. Embarrassingly old.... but boy, I love how much fabric they included. Jacque called dibs on my left-overs from this one, and as you can see, she'll likely have enough to make the exact same set of blocks, with only an occasional dip into her stash for anything she's short on.

I have no idea what I am trying to do here, but I'm playing with some of Karen and my favorite cartoon characters.... and I'm having a ball trying to figure it all out.

Isn't that what it's all about!?!

It was good seeing your Safe Haven block. I think that I have that BOM lurking around here somewhere and you've reminded that I should pull it out and work on it. I know what you're saying about those bigger blocks. I'm working on the Farmer's Wife quilt and I feel the same way when I shift gears to something larger. But it feels good to work with larger pieces for a little bit.

Someone has been busy while other people are slaving away at work. LOL!!!!

OK, jealousy is gone. TGIF!!!!

You are a sneaky devil working on new projects. I LOVE me Hoops and Yoyo. That is going to be darling.

Jacque said...

Aww, I love, love, love the Hoops and Yoyo!!
That is so cute! Love that SafeHaven block, too - glad I called dibs on your scraps! That one should work up quickly in those big squares!
Love you,
