Yesterday I went shopping and found a black solid and a charcoal gray solid fabric I liked and so it is in the washer getting all the dye to release I hope. I found some royal blue and a deep cranberry in my Mother's fabric and I am going to work with these colors to sash the 4-patches. These are for the grandkids when they get older and start their own households.
I stitched several more of these together and also in sections ans pressed what I had cut. I need to cut some more of the neutral and I have it laying out to be tackled.
Lots of stitching a little here and there and I have piles of blocks made. I think I have made over 300 4-patches. So they are stitched and pressed and when I get the sashings dry and cut I will tackle the rows. I have several more sets of blocks waiting to be matched with sashing or borders to make tops.
If I buy a little at a time and bring it in my husband doesn't get as wild about giving me a hard time. The solids I bought were a good price so I bought 5 yards of each. Black and gray can be used many places.
I am off now to take some sewing back to a neighbor and maybe go to the store to get something to go along with supper. Take care Chris
