I Have A Finish!

Its been busy here.  But I FINALLY have a finish!  


Stoplight was pieced in summer of 2018? while living in the camper.  Judy B in MN supplied the backing, it will be donated to the boy's group home.  Here's a pic of the snuggly backing--


I'll estimate 13 yds of fabric.  I have slowly been hand binding it since last summer.  You can find the free patten here.  I used a box of 2.5" strips and 2.5" squares for this pattern. 
Some quilters precut without a plan.  I only precut my scraps into a few sizes, depending on the scrap--2.5" strips if its a long piece, 5" squares, 3.5"x6.5" bricks, and 2.5" squares.  These are sizes I use.  Remember the scrap box I was going to CHOP CHOP in March?


I finished last week--


219 5" charms, 318 bricks, and a pile of 2.5" squares.  Two larger scraps went back into stash.  Enough from that box for two or three good sized quilts.  Quilts are planned using these precut sizes.

And I have made a few masks.  Very few.  Enough for family.  I SUCK at making masks!  I needed a mask for myself so I pulled out a green batik, I love the color green.  Put it on and took a selfie--


OMG--I made a NINJA TURTLE MASK!  I wore it yesterday at the grocery store and heard a few chuckles.  That's ok, I laughed too!
Stay safe!
