From my January project bag I cut out all the circles from the Bloom yardage. I took them with me as we drove to our daughter's house in Fort Collins (about 50 mi north of us) for New Year's Eve dinner and games.
I made seven yo-yos but I had to rip out the first two. The center wasn't closing up tightly and I realized that with the circles measuring 6.5 inches in diameter I was making my running stitich too small and it was creating too many gathers. Once I increased the size of the stitch the center came together nicely.
First thing today I recovered my tabletop pressing mat. After almost 20 years it is not so crisp and white anymore. I slipcoverd a fresh yellow gingham all ready for the New Year and lots of pressing.
Next came sashing strips for a lap quilt I am making for the living room.
These are 9" blocks - I don't remember the line but I bet Carol knows, do you remember these Carol? I have one vetical row down, I need to join the other three and then the sashing and the center will be complete.
